Myles Oakey (he/him) is a settler living and working on the unceded land of the Dharug and  Gundungurra people. He is a PhD candidate and sessional academic in the School of Humanities and Research Assistant for the Biocultural Diversities team at the Sydney Environment Institute (SEI). His research is situated in the broad field of the environmental humanities, but emerges at the intersection of environmental anthropology, science and technology studies, philosophical ethology, and extinction studies. His research thesis is focused on the conservation efforts for the regent honeyeater (Anthochaera phrygia), a critically endangered songbird endemic to the southeast of Australia.

I acknowledge the traditional custodians of the Dharug and Gundungurra peoples of the Blue Mountains where I live and the Gadigal people of the Eora Nation where the University of Sydney is located. I pay my respects to elders, past, present and emerging and acknowledge that sovereignty was never ceded.
