Dr John La Salle will take on the role as the Atlas’ Director for the next 18 months. John has been involved in the Atlas from its inception and played a key role in its establishment. As the Director of the Atlas, one of his main roles is working towards a secure future for the project by building a case for renewed government funding, maintaining partner engagement and searching for new opportunities.

John would like to thank the founding Director of the Atlas, Donald Hobern, for his invaluable contribution to the Atlas. Donald has left the Atlas to lead the Global Biodiversity Information Facility in Copenhagen – the biggest biodiversity informatics initiative in the world.
