Narelle Hill

Narelle has a dual degree from UQ in Science and Arts, majoring in Ancient History, English and Zoology. After graduation she received a scholarship from the University of Lausanne to research the impacts that conservation management practices were having on offspring fitness and sexual selection of the endemic whitefish. For her Honours project she is focusing on intertidal mudflats throughout the East Asian-Australasian Flyway; these habitats are critical sites for Australia’s migratory shorebirds, which have been experiencing rapid population declines in recent years. Due to the phenomenal distances that these birds migrate, it is internationally important to assess whether the protective mechanisms we have in place (protected areas, their designations, and management) are effective in minimising habitat and, thus, population loss.

Narelle is alson an executive board member for the Society for Conservation Biology’s UQ-Brisbane chapter and Brisbane’s Presentations Coordinator for the Australian Marine Conservation Society.
