Dr Ian Herbert is a retired scientist living with three generations of family members in the foothills of the Strathbogie Ranges. He is a full-time volunteer with local community groups including Landcare and the Swanpool Cinema. His sport is rogaining – navigating on foot through the bush with a map and compass – and he knows these forests well. In a world approaching the "limits to growth", he advocates for the strong protection of remnant flora and fauna.
