IUCN Skink Specialist

This week I joined the Species Survival Commission (SSC) Skink Specialist Group for the IUCN, with the hope that I can use my X-ray computed tomography skills to help identify and describe Australian skink diversity.

The IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature) is a global network composed of many such specialist groups, made of volunteer experts dedicated to conservation, species reintroduction, climate change, wildlife health and sustainable use and trade.

In addition to being a researcher, I choose to be an advocate for the animals I study.
