Lawson Brandis1 Born in Kalgoorlie, Lawson’s first encounter with nature was an echidna in the patio when he was four. A fascination for Australia’s bush ensued. Lawson graduated from Murdoch University in 2012 with a Bachelor of Science majoring in Conservation and Wildlife Biology.

While at university he developed an environmental management plan for Wireless Hill Reserve in Perth’s southern suburbs and authored a report on Black Cockatoo habitats for the City of Melville. As work commitments permit, Lawson continues to volunteer at the Department of Fisheries WA, helping with important research into Western Rock Lobster pleopods and blue swimmer crabs in the Swan River.

Lawson has studied and rescued a diverse range of native fauna found at the Wheatstone LNG Project in WA’s northwest. As well as this he has been involved in the trapping, study and relocation of Southern Brown Bandicoots in the southwest of WA and in fauna monitoring surveys in the biological “hotspot” that is the Midwest region of Western Australia.
