Elisha Duxbury is a Local Landcare Coordinator with Greater Sydney Landcare Network. She is extremely passionate about understanding the ways urbanisation affects ecosystems and applying that knowledge to real-world projects. Elisha has been involved with on-ground environmental restoration since 2008 as a volunteer and bush regenerator. She has BSc (Hons) in Biological Sciences with a focus on urban ecology. Recently, she has completed a Masters looking at the ways green infrastructure in Western Sydney can both provide ecosystem services and maximise biodiversity.
In her role with Greater Sydney Elisha focuses on supporting and empowering young people who want to become a part of the Landcare movement. She coordinated the delivery of the Western Sydney and South West Sydney Landcare Leadership Retreats in collaboration with Intrepid Landcare, which lead to the formation of networks of young people participating in environmental volunteering in their local areas and developing their own projects. As a 2017 Young Sustainability Ambassador she worked with students at Hawkesbury High School to develop their own biodiversity project.
