Philip Roetman is a Research Fellow at the University of South Australia’s Barbara Hardy Institute. Philip has worked closely with Prof Chris Daniels on citizen science projects, including “Operation Possum”, “Operation Magpie”, “Operation Spider”, and “the Great Koala Count”, as well as events such as “Bring us your Bugs”. These projects have engaged thousands of participants of all ages. Results have been disseminated back to the community through popular books like “The Possum-Tail Tree” and “The Fearsome Flute Players: Australian Magpies in our Lives”. In 2013, Philip commenced work on a new initiative, “Creating Biophilic Cities through Citizen Science”: http://www.unisa.edu.au/citizenscience.
