Most of my life has been directed towards active conservation, which leaves limited time for painting. I consider that the rewards I get from my environmental work far outweigh the benefits of my painting, though sometimes the rewards are limited. I can get a similar feeling of satisfaction from completing a well crafted report or submission as I can from a painting, at times with more significant effect.

I have summarised some of the highlights of my environmental activism.
