Barry (BJ) Traill
leads the Solutions for Climate Australia project, working to create enduring bipartisanship in federal politics for decisive action on climate. An ecologist by training, BJ is one of Australia’s most successful environmental advocates and has led and co-led work on many major environmental campaigns. This has included work with Indigenous peoples to protect Outback landscapes, greatly expanding Australia’s marine park network, and getting in place controls on land-clearing in Queensland, which greatly reduced Australia’s greenhouse gas emissions. BJ has lived in country Australia all his life and is especially passionate about protecting nature, and working with people in regional and remote Australia. He lives on Jinabara lands in the Sunshine Coast Hinterland.
