Hollows and other homes


Gayle Osborne, Amateur naturalist

Why did you get involved in environmental work?

Unfortunately it was the logging of the Wombat Forest. Initially I had very little understanding of the complexity of the forest ecosystems.

What was it about your special area that interested you?

I have always been fascinated by complexity and the natural world is full of interrelated systems which are gradually made apparent by scientific research and observation.


I love the Natural Newstead blog which is a seasonal nature sightings site from the Newstead area, just north of the Wombat Forest.
