Caleb McElrea

Caleb McElrea has had a fascination with the natural world ever since Cadbury Yowies chemically associated it with chocolate-triggered endorphins (we suspect). Studying a Bachelor of Wildlife Science at the University of Queensland and Honours in Zoology at the University of Melbourne, his passions lie in the area of wildlife filmmaking and science communication. He’s passionate about that bit in the Venn Diagram where creativity and scientific thinking overlap. In his opinion, helping students and scientists to better understand how to work within that sphere is one of the most important challenges (and opportunities!) we face today. As such, you can find him in a variety of habitats, as long as there are ample birds, mammals and critters to photograph, and new people to meet once his extroversion is starved to the point of desperation.
