Bryony Palmer

Wildlife ecologist

Bryony is a wildlife ecologist and a PhD student with the School of Biological Sciences at the University of Western Australia. Her main interests are in the conservation ecology of Australia’s threatened species, particularly the use of reintroductions and translocations to improve their conservation status, and in exploring ecosystem processes and functions.

Before commencing her PhD Bryony spent more than seven years working as a terrestrial ecologist. She was involved in the development and implementation of monitoring programs for a range of taxa including mammals, reptiles, amphibians and birds predominantly in south-west Australia. A large part of her work also focused on monitoring reintroduced populations of threatened mammals and conducting translocations of species including woylies, numbats and tammar wallabies.
