Parks Australia stalwart Doug Brown has realised a long-held ambition to visit Christmas Island. Doug travelled with Judy West to meet with park staff and discuss the draft Christmas Island Biodiversity Conservation Plan which is currently out for public comment. Doug was also thrilled to see one of Christmas Island’s famous robber crabs – the world’s largest terrestrial invertebrate.
