Presents evidence given at a hearing suggesting that Dr Syd Shea, executive director of the Department of Conservation and Land Management (CALM), had transferred Dr Elaine Davidson, a senior scientist at CALM, to a remote area because she raised concerns with the department's policy. The evidence given denied that the transfer was personal and instead motivated by a shift in department priorities.
