Penny Pascoe

PhD Candidate

I am currently a PhD candidate at the Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies, The University of Tasmania. My project is looking at quantifying island ecosystem recovery following invasive rodent eradications.

I have spent recent years working on a diverse range of field based projects including invasive weed management and eradication in the Victorian high-planes, southern elephant seal and New Zealand sealion satellite tag tracking on sub-Antarctic Campbell Island, investigating the effects of ocean acidification on the bottom of the Antarctic marine food web at Davis station in Antarctica, Hooded grebe conservation in Patagonia, various seabird monitoring projects on islands around New Zealand and Australia, and 18 months working on wildlife monitoring programs on sub-Antarctic Macquarie Island.

I am passionate about understanding and protecting remote ecosystems.
