Dr Georgia Ward-Fear

Dr Georgia Ward-Fear is a conservation scientist, reptile biologist, and explorer. From a young age, watching David Attenborough investigate the mysteries of nature had her hooked on investigating them herself. Georgia developed ‘The Cane Toad Coalition’ (2017), a strategic partnership between prominent conservation organisations, Indigenous NGOs and cultural groups, State governments and regional stakeholders; never before had these organisations allied in this way. Georgia leads the coalition, with the ambitious task of delivering the largest and most innovative strategy for cane toad mitigation to date; it’s working.
