My PhD is focusing on identifying and mapping critical habitat for Australian sea lions.

Australian sea lions are listed as endangered under the International Union for Conservation for Nature (IUCN) Red List. My project is using innovative technologies including animal-borne camera loggers, GPS and time-depth recorders to better understand critical foraging habitat, prey and behaviours for Australian sea lions across state and commonwealth marine reserves in southern Australia.

This data will be used to better inform conservation/management in state and commonwealth marine reserves and to increase public awareness for Australian sea lions, the issues they face and the role of marine reserves in their conservation.
