Project description:

My research is looking at how climate change will affect protected area management and how we should adapt protected area management for climate change. The aim of my research is to develop and apply a method to assist protected area managers in understanding how their protected areas will respond to future climate change, how they can make informed decisions, and devise possible management strategies. My study area includes the World Heritage listed protected areas, Gondwana Rainforests of Australia on the Scenic Rim in South East Queensland, primarily Springbrook, Lamington, Mount Barney and Main Range National Parks.
