During her previous ten years in Zambia she founded the non profit organisation, the Zambian Carnivore Programme using the African wild dog and other large carnivores as flagship species for landscape-scale conservation, and secured core funding from the World Wildlife Fund.

Since returning to Australia she has developed conservation programs for a variety of organisations based on her successful model of combining research, on-ground conservation action and community education and engagement.
