David has a weekly science and environment segments on ABC Radio. David has an ongoing role in natural area management projects in a number of Pacific nations working on ‘capacity building projects’ in Tonga (assisting in the development of the Fangu’ata Lagoon management plan which was developed with village level input) and developing management strategies for the Fisheries Department. David is currently working on research and training projects in East and West Timor, and PNG. In particular he is working on community based projects to provide “value adding” for coffee in East Timor and curriculum development for the East Timor Coffee Academy.
