Ali is a retired agricultural project officer based in Queensland and the key instigator behind our work in Papua New Guinea (PNG). He saw what Kyeema was doing in Africa with promoting smallholder chicken keeping and thought it was needed in his own birth country of PNG. He now helps to grow the establish PNG program.
Lana is an environmental scientist who specialises in science communication and illustration, focused on coastal and freshwater wetlands and the Great Barrier Reef.
