International Women’s day – women in conservation (in action)

This year I spent International Women’s day out in the field with students and some amazing (female) colleagues. I sadly missed the annual Tasmanian Land Conservancy Women in Conservation event – but instead got to do some live women in conservation activities like field surveys for caged and un-caged Eucalyptus saplings to determine if caging is a successful strategy to protect saplings from deer damage and wallaby browsing. Is there any better way to celebrate great conservation science and International Women’s day than in nature?
