Ray Lloyd is currently employed as a Wildlife Ecologist with the Australian Wildlife Conservancy, based at Mornington Wildlife Sanctuary in the Central Kimberley, Western Australia. Ray has had a life long interest in reptiles and amphibians, in particular the biology and ecology of elapid snakes, varanid lizards, pygpodid lizards, and also reptile taxonomy. In 2006 he completed a BSc (Honours) at James Cook University, documenting the predatory effects of goannas (Varanus spp.) on three sympatric skinks (Carlia spp.) on Hinchinbrook Island. With six scientific publications and plenty more on the way, Ray is now involved with research on the effects of fire and grazing on the health, abundance and diversity of species in the Kimberley and areas of the Northern Territory.
