Zoologist & Conservation Advocate


Dr Barry Traill is one of Australia's leading environmental campaigners. Driven by a lifelong love of Australia's bush and unique wildlife, Barry has successfully combined his expertise in zoology, skills in advocacy, and his ability to motivate and collaborate, to secure large areas of Australia's land and sea from destructive threats.

In 2007 Barry became the Australian Director of the global NGO the Pew Charitable Trusts and leads their work in protecting one of the world's great remaining natural places – the Australian Outback.
