Milou is an ecologist, photographer and mother

She is passionate about the conservation of nature and connecting people back to nature through her photography. Her photos attempt to capture the art that lies within the natural world all around us.
Milou studied ecology and conservation at The Australian National University and The University Of New England and has spent many hours in the bush as a field researcher. She has worked in environmental education for NGO's such as Frogwatch ACT, The Canberra Environmental Centre and The Woodlands and Wetlands Conservation trust which was established to ensure two reserves in Canberra are managed to provide rich and diverse environments for current and future generations.
