Dr Rob Morrison
For 36 years, zoologist and ecologist Dr Rob Morrison has successfully initiated science programs at all levels, achieving national, international and local recognition as an outstanding science communicator. Presenter and co-writer of The Curiosity Show (Nine Network) for 18 years, Dr Morrison has been described as the '80s pin-up-boy of science and is a household name in the nation's playgrounds. Indeed, in its time, The Curiosity Show was the only science education many Australian primary students received.
Dr Morrison's work has added profoundly to the promotion and understanding of science in Australia. In gratitude for his boundless energy and inspiration, Dr Morrison has been awarded the $10,000 Australian Government Eureka Prize for Promoting Understanding of Science.
In the past 12 months alone, Dr Morrison helped establish SciWorld - a new science centre in Adelaide which runs exciting education programs for all South Australians; commenced programs for thousands of schools students showcasing careers in industry and developed six regional science fairs and shows including Adelaide's National Science Week.
For 25 years, Dr Morrison has been one of the familiar faces of science television through appearances on The New Inventors, Nexus, Science Magazine and Radio National's Ockham's Razor.
"I like teaching - making complex things understandable to the novice. This is pretty important in science communication. I don't like the idea of a scientist having all the answers", says Dr Morrison.
Dr Morrison is a passionate Zoologist and President of the Royal Zoological Society of South Australia. Under his Presidency, the Society has trebled its membership in 6 years to 17,000.
As a practitioner of Zoology, he devised the nation's Wanderer Butterfly Project, inspiring thousands of young Australians in scientific monitoring of butterfly migration and The Nestbox Project, involving thousands more in the making and installing nest boxes to benefit native wildlife. In 2002, as part of the Science Committee for Encounter - a celebration of the combined voyages of Matthew Flinders and Nicolas Baudin - Dr Morrison initiated and named the Lesueur Conservation Park on Kangaroo Island.
Dr Morrison is author of 30 books on science and natural history. He wrote the first Field Guide to the Tracks and Traces of Australian Animals - the only book to deal with all Australian taxa. The book was awarded the Adelaide Festival of Arts Literary Prize. As a result, he was an expert witness on animal tracks and dingo behaviour for the Royal Commission of Inquiry into the Chamberlain Convictions.
