David is experienced in working with Indigenous people in natural resource management and heritage related activities. His work recognises and respects the knowledge Indigenous people have in managing land and sea, and the importance of this knowledge toward conserving and managing biodiversity. His experience in Cape York Peninsula and Torres Strait focuses on building bridges between western science and traditional knowledge to achieve better outcomes for people and country. This includes extensive work with the Land and Sea Unit of the Torres Strait Regional Authority documenting biodiversity values and land management issues across the Torres Strait region. Other key projects involve working with Traditional Owners and Rangers to document traditional knowledge and ethnobotany, biodiversity inventories, and cultural heritage and environment plans. These projects incorporate a mentoring and training component towards developing Rangers skills and techniques in flora and fauna surveys, invasive species management and ecological fire management.
