Australian Geographic - - From The Editor-In-Chief -

Jack Mur­phy

is a pho­tog­ra­pher and jour­nal­ist spe­cial­is­ing in ma­rine en­vi­ron­ments. A fa­nat­i­cal fish­er­man, his pas­sion for ma­rine con­ser­va­tion and com­mu­ni­ca­tion has sent him all over the coun­try – from the windy, rugged cliffs near Ea­gle­hawk Neck in Tassie, to the far­thest reaches of the Great Bar­rier Reef in far north Queens­land. This as­sign­ment on flat­back tur­tles is his first for AUSTRALIAN GE­O­GRAPHIC (page 44).

Sara Phillips

is an award-win­ning editor and jour­nal­ist. She is cur­rently the ABC’s na­tional en­vi­ron­ment reporter cov­er­ing sto­ries across TV, ra­dio and on­line. Pre­vi­ously Sara was editor of G Magazine, a green life­style ti­tle, and deputy editor of Cos­mos, a sci­ence magazine. When not writ­ing about the en­vi­ron­ment, she can be found cy­cling or puz­zling over cryptic cross­words (page 84).

Brett Jar­rett

has been a pro­fes­sional artist for 25 years and is among Aus­tralia’s most ex­pe­ri­enced an­i­mal il­lus­tra­tors. Self-taught, Brett has searched for sub­jects world­wide with many trips to Antarc­tica, Aus­trala­sia, the Arc­tic and the Amer­i­cas. Brett cre­ated the il­lus­tra­tions for our whale poster, free to read­ers with this is­sue, and is the artist and co-au­thor of sev­eral books ded­i­cated to ma­rine mam­mal iden­ti­fi­ca­tion.
