Masters Student and volunteer – Nicole volunteered her time to help coordinate volunteers for our field trips from 2016 to early 2019. She also completed her research project for her Wildlife Masters degree under our Blue Mountains Koala Project, then stayed on as one of our most dedicated volunteers. In addition to helping to organise the logistics of fieldwork days, helping to prepare training materials and communicating with our other volunteers, she was regularly out tracking our tagged koalas in the beautiful Wollemi National Park. She had a particular favourite koala, Jac, who was also the most challenging to track and often took an entire day of rugged off-track hiking to find. As of early 2019 she is working with the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage, continuing to help conserve koalas.
