Nancy’s passion for the natural world has led her to work in alpine, Arctic, rainforest and desert ecosystems. Her connections to the living world and interactions with the increasingly distressed biosphere have inspired her commitment to biodiversity conservation. She was awarded a PhD from the University of Queensland for her research into prioritising management actions for conservation of threatened flora and fauna. She was compelled to participate in Homeward Bound to join other women scientists in creating an alternative future. She advocates a holistic stewardship of nature and the environment over economic growth. She avidly birds, skis, runs, rock-climbs and knits.
