Karen joined the Inala team in 2017 and has been a very keen birder all her life.
She is a highly motivated, enthusiastic environmental specialist with more than twenty five years’ experience of ecology, environmental management, research and education, with specialist expertise in ecology, ecological impact assessment, ornithology, biodiversity conservation, and sustainability issues. She has practised ecology since 1988, and has worked on projects in a variety of countries around the world. Karen relocated with her family from the UK to Tasmania in 2012.
Living in Hobart, she is at the beating heart of a network of Tasmanian Birders and continually traverses the whole state both on guided tours and for her own birding pleasure.
As well as being able to impart her excellent knowledge of birds, mammals and the whole environmental world in an clear and interesting manner, Karen is also a pleasure to spend time with. Friendly, thoughtful and always willing to go above and beyond for every guest, we are delighted to have her as part of the Inala Family.
"....Best of all was Karen Dick, the fantastic guide whom Inala provided. Not only did she accommodate our particular birding and mammal needs, she also was a heap of fun to be with. We look forward to a return trip!" KT - October 2017
"Spent a wonderful day birding Bruny Island with Karen Dick through Inala Nature Tours. Having provided Karen with a fairly specific list of birds we would like to try and see, was soon impressed with the effort she put in to locate them for us. Along with the birds we spent the day enjoying and hearing about the ecology, history and 'feel' of Bruny Island. Could not have asked for a more pleasant, knowledgeable and hard working guide. Highly recommended, many thanks :-)" AB- Feb 2018
