Tiago will be working with Dr. Kerrie Wilson on mapping and definig reference areas, the use of remote sensing and restoration. Whilst under Dr. Kerrie Wilson's guidance, Tiago will attempt to connect the identification of priority areas for protection with futrue restoration projects utilising collaborations with Dr. Clive McAlpine, and Luke Shoo. The aims of the research internship are as follows:  - Build a theoretical foundation for defining reference areas in order to inform future restoration projects, and - Propose a framework to prioritise the protection of reference areas, based on cost, extent of habitat remaining, threats, habitat suitability and the ecological traits of key species.
