Dr. Darren Le Roux
Darren is an Ecologist with the ACT Government Parks and Conservation Service. He is responsible for the design and implementation of large-scale remediation and restoration construction projects within the PCS Estate, including developing novel methods to restore and monitor native grasslands and woodlands. His research interests include restoration ecology, urban biodiversity and conservation biology.
