Mr JP Emery

The University of Western Australia

Jon-Paul (JP) Emery is a Phd student at the University of Western Australia. His project will be looking at the Blue tailed skink (Cryptoblepharus egeriae) and Listers gecko (Lepidodactylus listeri) which are now both extinct in the wild, but have captive populations on Christmas Island and Taronga Zoo, and looking at possible options for reintroductions and or translocations.

Since finishing his undergraduate studies at UQ in 2014 in Environmental Management, JP worked as a Park Ranger with the Queensland Parks and Wildlife Service until January 2017.

His primary interests are in reptiles and how we can enhance reptile conservation outcomes.
