Professor Richard Fuller is based at the University of Queensland in Australia, where he studies the ecology and conservation of migratory species, especially migratory shorebirds of the East Asian – Australasian Flyway. Professor Fuller’s work focuses on documenting how migratory birds are impacted by habitat loss, climate change, hunting and other threats, and understanding how these threats can be reversed through conservation actions. His work combines data from remote sensing of coastal environments with information on migration strategies and routes taken by the birds to design conservation management strategies that can protect the birds. Much of Professor Fuller’s work is interdisciplinary, focusing on the interactions between people and nature, how these can be enhanced, and how these relationships can be shaped to solve to the biodiversity crisis.
