Hello, my name is Alexander Hendry and I am a Bachelor of Advanced Science student studying at the University of Queensland. I have a broad interest in wildlife and conservation and a particular interest in primates, cats, and bears. I am also interested in wildlife tourism, captive animal welfare, and Antarctica. Outside of my science career I am involved in the Scouting Movement and I also study Japanese.

Within the Ecological Cascade Lab, I have worked on two projects involving the marbled cat and sun bear. I have found that the marbled cat is strongly associated with intact habitat and appears unable to adapt to degraded landscapes, unlike the sympatric leopard cat. Conversely I have found that the sun bear may be most abundant in environments with moderate levels of disturbance, which may have important implications for the conservation of this species.
