Dr Nick Whiterod is passionate about promoting the plight of freshwater species and strives to ensure that species that are highly threatened receive attention commensurate with their threatened status. Nick is a Senior Aquatic Ecologist with Aquasave – Nature Glenelg Trust, a not-for profit organisation. Nick has a PhD in Environmental Science from Charles Sturt University and a Bachelor of Science (Environmental Science) from Adelaide University. He practically lives in freshwater, undertaking research and conservation widely across southern Australian – frequently for oft-neglected, threatened, small-bodied freshwater fish and freshwater crayfish. Nick is concerned with understanding population dynamics, providing knowledge to inform management, and implementing conservation translocations to aid recovery. In 2018, Nick received a Churchill Fellowship to explore conservation translocation approaches across the world. He is currently leading a federally funded collaborative project (“Saving the spinys”), addressing the urgent conservation needs of bushfire-impacted priority spiny crayfish from the Euastacus genus.
