Angela Guerrero’s research focuses on the people side of conservation: how governance systems and the decision-making processes can be designed to enable effective management.
Last year Angela worked with the National Environmental Science Programme’s Threatened Species Recovery Hub (TSR) to examine recovery efforts across Australia in an effort to identify the barriers and enablers of successful recovery efforts. The TSR published a profile of Angela’s work. You can see it here.
The $60 million Threatened Species Recovery Hub is supported by funding through the Australian Government’s National Environmental Science Programme (NESP), and matched by contributions from 10 of the country’s leading academic institutions and the Australian Wildlife Conservancy. It works closely with more than two dozen collaborating organisations, including management agencies and conservation groups, to ensure its research has an on-ground impact in threatened species management (NESP)
