Overwhelmed with the Climate Emergency and steps we can possibly take to make a difference? Frustrated about lack of navigation from our pollies about climate change and conservation? Lets talk to the expert with a wealth of knowledge about Country, our environment, ecology, conservation and perhaps the steps we can take to make a difference in our world.

About Dr Jack Pascoe:

Jack grew up at Cape Otway before leaving to study Environmental Science at Deakin University and going on to complete a PhD with the University of Western Sydney where he studied the predators of the Blue Mountains. His key fields of interest are the ecology of apex predators and fire. Immediately prior to joining the CEC, Jack worked with one of our project partners, the Southern Otway Landcare Network, primarily focusing on mitigating the impacts of pest plants and animals throughout the Otways.

He also volunteers in firefighting, road rescue, steep angle recovery and search and rescue with the Apollo Bay Country Fire Authority.
