He dealt with private land conservation issues with Trust for Nature, Victoria and on public land conservation issues with the Victoria National Parks Association, Environment Victoria and the Wilderness Society. He was instrumental in establishing nationally coordinated work on the protection of Australian woodlands, including legislation that sharply reduced deforestation rates in Australia.
