Jaquelina is an environmentalist and sustainability advocate with a passion for wildlife conservation and mitigating the effects of climate change.
Jaquelina brings a Bachelor of Science (Earth and Environmental Systems) and seven years of experience working and volunteering for not-for-profit organisations and community groups around the globe. She has spent the past four years working in fundraising roles for Australian wildlife conservation charities.
Having grown up on Phillip Island Jaquelina has witnessed the devastation that can occur from invasive species, particularly foxes and feral cats predating on little penguins and other shorebirds. She has also seen the opportunities for threatened species conservation if invasive species are controlled and eradicated. She recognises the importance of the role that the Invasive Species Council must play in protecting Australia’s biodiversity and biosecurity.
Jaquelina works on Millowl, the land of the Bunurong people.
