Faith Coleman comes from a family of environmentalists and primary producers, with multiple generations of her family working on the ecology of salinas, salt lakes and estuaries, so she was (quite literally) born with her feet in saline muds. She spent her childhood exploring tidal deltas, in some of the most remote regions of Australia. She is passionate about developing deep understandings of estuarine processes, integrated approaches to estuarine management, adaptive management of landscapes to preserve ecological features, climate change adaptation and sustainable natural resource use. Faith has also published under the name Faith S. Cook.
