Jennifer Lavers

Researcher

Dr Jennifer Lavers

Jenn (Métis Nation) coordinates Adrift Lab, where the research undertaken by our wonderful team focuses on traditional (Indigenous) knowledge, and using wild species, especially birds, as sentinels (indicators) of physical and chemical pollution in marine and freshwater environments. Islands also feature at Adrift Lab, as remote areas can act as natural ‘controls’. Jennifer invests significant time in science communication, including feature roles in documentary films such as A Plastic Ocean, BLUE, and Drowning in Plastic. Stay tuned for details on two additional documentaries due for release in 2023 and 2024!

She currently works as a Healthy Country Planner for the Tjaltjraak Native Title Aboriginal Corporation in Esperance, WA. She's also a Subject Editor for the journal Avian Conservation and Ecology and coordinates two ornithology units at Charles Sturt University's Gulbali Institute. She also holds Adjunct positions with the UWA Oceans Institute and Natural History Museum (UK).
