Paul is trained as an ecologist and a bushfire management professional and has worked in land management agencies as an ecologist working on vegetation mapping and threatened species recovery programs; as a planner developing management plans for protected areas; as a ranger; protected area manager; fire management officer and more recently leading the fire management program as the State Fire Manager for the Parks and Wildlife Service in Tasmania. Paul has been involved in shaping research projects into the likely impacts that climate change induced fire regimes will have on the reserve system and development of spatial decision support tools to assist with management of these impacts. Paul has been fortunate to work in some outstanding locations such as the World Heritage Areas at Uluru Kata Tjuta National Park in central Australia, the Macquarie Island Nature Reserve in the subantarctic and the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area. This experience has given Paul a thorough understanding of the management objectives of our most important and internationally significant reserves and operational experience in managing and protecting these reserves and values from fire and other threats in a changing climate.
Thanks for your support and the rest of Tangent Link at the event. As a sponsor we felt valued and believed we made a valuable contribution to the conference delegates. The demonstration was a great way to show exhibitor’s products as well as giving a more comprehensive understanding of new concepts and systems. Well done team.
The networking opportunities were fantastic, well worth delegates and trade exhibitors. Static and Dynamic demonstrations were well organised and a highlight of the conference.
The conference went absolutely very well for us, it was interesting and useful. We enjoyed every moment, both of professional networking and the excellent atmosphere of communication between colleagues, the people who speak in the same ‘firefighting’ language. Your team is incredible.”
Once again the Tangent Link Team put on a premier event, offering fantastic information presentation and unparalleled networking opportunities for aerial firefighting.
One of the best industry specific events I have attended with key decision making persons in attendance.
