Samuel Chen - MSciComm, BEnv, BA, GDLT
Whether working as a park ranger in the remote deserts of Central Australia; a koala catcher on Kangaroo Island; or undertaking various wildlife projects across Australia – Samuel loves and knows Australia’s wildlife. After a career spanning over ten years in the environmental management field, one illuminating thought changed the course of his professional life: that stories about the natural world shared through popular media have a significant power to influence, and bring about environmental change.
