Hi I’m Sophie,
Originally from Geelong I have spent the last couple of years working in the Top End of the Northern Territory predominantly working with the Wardman Traditional Owners to help coordinate their Indigenous Protected area through the Northern Land Council. I have a background in Environmental Science, where I have gone on to specialise in the effects of prescribed burning on the vegetation structure of the Anglesea Heathland. I am no stranger to the Otways area, not only for regular holiday and surf visits over the years, but also from working on the track maintenance of the Great Ocean Walk from time to time. I look forward to working with the SOLN community and learning more from all of you about the area.
