Dr. Haydn Washington has a thirty eight year history as an environmental scientist, writer and activist. He has a degree in ecology, a Masters of Science in eco-toxicology (heavy metal pollution), a Dip. Ed., and a Ph.D. 'The Wilderness Knot' in Social Ecology (2007). Haydn was worked as an Investigations Scientist in CSIRO, Director of the Nature Conservation Council of NSW (1988), as an environmental consultant, and as a Director of Sustainability in Local Government. He has conducted many flora surveys as a plant ecologist (e.g. Gardens of Stone NP, Wollemi NP) and worked studying the Wollemi Pine (also finding the second site). He has also worked extensively within environmental non-government organisations, being a councillor on the Australian Conservation Foundation for four terms, the secretary of the Colo Committee (which led the campaign to create Wollemi NP), and a media officer for the Wilderness Society. Haydn is also keenly interested in geodiversity, especially the pagoda rock formations of the western Blue Mountains.
