Peter Macinnis

Auther, Educator, Backyard Naturalist

Once a high school science teacher, once a bureaucrat, once many other things, always a naturalist and enquirer into curious things, always a gadgeteer and always a writer, the author. In my spare time, I am a bush regenerator.

I am also a practising grandfather, and for several years, as part of the CSIRO ‘Scientists in Schools’ program (now branded as ‘STEM Professionals in Schools’), I have been the “visiting scientist” at Manly Vale Public School in Sydney, which is like acquiring 500 extra grandchildren without the usual effort. My scientist wife, our scientist children and I care passionately about the future—and there is no future quite like children. This is where our battle for the future begins.
