Simon Fitzpatrick – Project Officer

Simon works closely with OzFish Chapters, helping them promote and run events and projects. Simon has always been fascinated with the aquatic environment.  His love for the environment has seen him work on the Great Barrier Reef as a sea kayaking guide and in the pristine jungle in Far North Queensland as a river guide. He has also worked as a fishing guide in Cairns and runs Northern Rivers Sportfishing Charters in Northern NSW.

After witnessing the decline in aquatic habitats in our rivers and oceans he was compelled to follow a career in conservation. Since graduating from Southern Cross University with a degree in Environmental Science and Natural Resource Management he now work with a variety of stakeholders rehabilitating aquatic habitats.
