Leonie Valentine

The University of Western Australia

Leonie Valentine is a conservation biologist and Postdoctoral Research Fellow with the Ecosystem Restoration and Intervention Ecology (ERIE) group at University of Western Australia. Her research investigates how and why fauna respond to disturbances, the role of fauna in ecosystem function and restoration ecology, and explores novel resource use by threatened fauna.

Leonie's current research examines the role of digging mammals as ecosystem engineers and how translocations of threatened species may be important for landscape restoration. Her work is often collaborative with conservation management agencies and she hopes their joint research will result in greater conservation outcomes.
