Habitat Network - Habitat corridor researcher
Matthew Eylander is a Graduate in Environmental Science from the University of Sydney.
He has always been passionate about Australia's heritage and enjoys bushwalking and landscape photography...
when he is not gardening. Matthew spent some time educating people about Australia,
employed as an Outback Tour Guide across four States on the mainland, and for a while considered Uluru his office.
After volunteering in Eastern Tasmania as a field assistant to the Save the Tasmanian Devil campaign,
he found work as an Animal Keeper, looking after captive devils housed for research into Devil Facial Tumour
Presently living back in the Putney house he grew up in, Matthew recognises Sydney as truly home.
Being passionate about the Bush and ecological communities presents a fantastic opportunity, through the
Habitat Network, to work on restoring degraded ecosystems of our urban landscapes.
Matthew would like to see increased awareness and appreciation for biodiversity, with a greater
value placed on threatened species and extinction prevention. He is currently studying a Masters in
Environmental Management through Charles Sturt University.
