The Gympie Landcare crew would like to welcome our new CLS Manager, Tom Brook to our team!

Tom is a motivated environmental scientist with particular interest in ecological assessments and environmental conservation and management. Tom has a strong interest in ecological conservation, particularly on how the modification or urbanisation of natural ecosystems affects its functioning. Tom’s education and research background has largely focused on how urban infrastructure has impacted the composition and distribution of fauna, both in terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems and he is keen to implement his knowledge and skills within the Gympie Landcare CLS team.

As in any new role, there is a transitional period which can sometimes be overwhelming for anyone. However, after only a couple of weeks in the job Tom has met with many of our stakeholders and has a firm grasp on the organisational practices of the CLS team and is well on his way to implementing better policies, procedures, and customer service experiences.

Next time you’re in our nursery, feel free to introduce yourself if you see him floating around! If you are looking for a professional ecologist to assess your property, we can provide reports through our CLS services and Tom will be more than happy to assist you.
