Emeritus Professor Peter Saenger BSc(Hons)(Melb), PhD(Melb) Peter Saenger led the Coastal Management Program in the School of Environmental Science and Management at Southern Cross University from 1985 until his recent retirement. He received his Ph.D. in Marine Botany at the University of Melbourne and after a post-doctoral fellowship at the University of Uppsala, Sweden, he went on to hold a number of academic positions at Australian and overseas Universities. Subsequently, he worked as an Environmental Consultant in Brisbane for a decade and studied Law at the University of Queensland before returning to academia. He has worked on mangrove ecology and related management problems in Africa, the Middle East, South-east Asia and in Central America and advises several UN agencies for projects dealing with the international management of the coastal zone and sustainable development. He has published extensively in international and Australian scientific journals as well as written several books on mangrove and coral reef ecology and management.
