Meet the Speaker

Todd Walsh is an Aboriginal Tasmanian man with a inter-generational link to the Giant Freshwater Crayfish.

Todd has been catching the GFC for more than 40 years. He and generations of his family, caught and ate the world’s largest freshwater invertebrate. After learning of an imminent fishing ban in 1997, he devoted his passion to preserving the animal and its habitat. He has captured and released more than 2500 GFC and microchipped more than 800. Todd has pursued more stringent protection measures for the habitat of the GFC, with varying results.

Todd also undertakes AusRivAS assessments throughout Tasmania.

Todd has a Diploma in Aquaculture and worked around Australia farming various species until 1997. He also holds a Degree in Indigenous Knowledge.

This webinar will run on Australian Eastern Standard Time (AEST). This webinar will be recorded and a link to access the recording will be sent to all registered attendees at the conclusion of the webinar.
