The Western Ground Parrot Committee

The committee currently consists of six volunteers located across Australia who are committed to Saving Kyloring delivering on the objects of the group’s constitution.

Paul Wettin

(BSc- Biology, MSc- Zoology)


Paul worked professionally in water management in NSW for government and as a consultant for some 35 years, specialising in environmental water management. He has lived in Albany / Kinjarling since 2013 and was immediately attracted to the amazing biodiversity and beauty of the region, including help for Kyloring. He can be found most mornings swimming at Middleton Beach / Binalup.

Julie Lee



Although her professional background is as a Company Secretary, and prior to that as an accountant, Julie’s passion has always been for wildlife and the environment.  She supports a myriad of environmental and wildlife organisations and was previously a wildlife carer.  Julie is Perth-born and although she’s been living “over East” for 30+ years, she has never lost her connection to WA.  Apart from an obvious soft spot for the WGP, her favourite native animal is the numbat!

Chris Young


Committee Member

An engineering manager within the water industry for over 25 years Chris is a crazy keen birder, bird bander, bird photographer and seabird rescuer. He is extremely passionate about the environment and ensuring that the Western Ground Parrot will be around for future generations. When he’s not watching birds he’s watching football…the proper one with the round ball.

Bios for other committee members, Liz Tanner, Peter Stewart and Sue Plewright will be coming soon…
