Founder, Lead Blogger & World Champion Worrier
Working in IT in a former life, Richard now divides his time between business analysis and EnviroBlog.net.
Passionate about everything conservation and environmentalism, Richard wants to live in a world where our natural systems don't need vigorous, confrontational protection; sustainability will be woven into the fabric of our culture.
Until then, we fight the corporate and political machine. Education and good -faith discussion is how we start.

A long journey has led Glenn to be a contributor to the site. Taking over from his father, he continued running cattle on the family property. After the challenging process of transitioning to "growing" certified organic beef, he decided to take a drastic turn; the cattle have now been replaced with alpacas. Though less lucrative than large-scale cattle grazing, he now sells alpaca fiber to a handful of regular customers, along with growing seasonal vegetables for the local markets.
Insisting he isn't a natural writer, Glenn does like to post blogs on alternative or controversial topics. He finds he is most inspired when disagreeing with our other site contributors. His input is valued a lot, especially because the focus is always on the issue, and not the individual.

With an enormous passion for protecting our environment, she believes we need to do everything possible to regain a balance with nature. By conserving, protecting and living in harmony with mother nature we will restore an appreciation for what is truly important, and thus improve our own well-being, as just one of myriad species on this "blue marble".

“This is no longer where I live,
this is how I live."
Koala Gardens is a privately owned property that has been dedicated to the regeneration of native Australian habitat. There is one small area planted with 300 trees that are harvested to provide food to koalas in care at Friends of the Koala in Lismore.
The major focus is on regenerating native habitat with possibly 14 vulnerable species standing to benefit. Of these 14 species, 5 have now been sighted on the property; the other 9 are known to be in the area and their habitat is on the property.
Koala Gardens knows that one property doing this is not enough and is developing a model that other properties can use to begin regeneration works of their own. The property owner, Katrina Jeffery, believes that education is the key to getting people involved in the solution - more land dedicated to native ecosystems.
