Andrew has a very powerful communication style:
Direct, informative, insightful
Environmental Educator. Wildlife Naturalist. Speaker. Writer.
Andrew is a one of a kind environmental educator and wildlife naturalist with a professional career in conservation land management and environmental education, both as a private consultant, and with the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service.
“His true power as a teacher comes from a rare ability to take the formidable complexity of the natural world and reveal a deeper layer of interconnectedness, told through stories that are meaningful, personal, and inspiring!”
“If you need a visitor or speaker to spice up your youth group or grassroots organisation, you have to get … Andrew Turbill! He lit up the room with his fascinating past lifestyle, his current naturalist outlook and intriguing perspective on a healthy future. His knowledge even enthuses the uneducated to get involved through witty humour and a positive demeanour. Everyone appreciated his presence at Young Mercy Links and agreed that he was a vital speaker to have visit!”
“I went to my first climate change talk of Andrews in 2009. The science back then was just as alarming, but Andrew presented it in a way with enough creative metaphors, hope and wit to engage and inspire my young student self. I remember that talk as being a pivotal moment in sparking my biospheric consciousness. His continual mentoring has helped shape an understanding of myself in this world.”
“His enthusiasm and depth of knowledge for birds and ecology was equalled by a desire to engage others in the their mysteries. Rather than ticking birds off a list, Andrew helped open the doors of the forest, sparking my lifelong passion for birds and all that they can teach us.”
