Office of Environment & Heritage NSW

I have worked for the Office of Environment and Heritage NSW (originally National Parks and Wildlife Service) on and off for over 25 years in a range of positions working to protect our natural and cultural heritage. This has included national park management planning; protecting threatened species, biodiversity and native vegetation; and managing regional conservation assessments. I was with the agency for 10 years as a full-time permanent employee until 2005, and since leaving have been engaged in various capacities as a temporary employee and freelance editor.

The work I have undertaken for the National Parks and Wildlife Service Division (Park Operations and Park Programs) is listed separately.

In terms of other OEH divisions, I have undertaken various freelance editing contracts, including:
