Brent trained in threatened species management and behavioural biology. He currently consults on numerous biosecurity and ecology projects and is a trained practitioner in field-based conservation and animal biosecurity.
Due to his highly diverse experience, he can apply his morphometric and behavioural knowledge of wildlife to help create species-specific devices which exclude non-target species. Following years of island-based research, he has had first-hand experience of many predator control strategies and works with his colleagues to prescribe the most up-to-date and effective plans for various reserve, park and community applications.
