I never knew Paul; except through his appearance in the BBC DVD "Birds of Paradise". Incredible work and life force; hopeful that the work continues despite the tragic loss. My prayers and sympathies to the family and community.

Dear Paul,

Two years on...time has come to pass but your memory lingers on in the sweet sounds of the birds you love call out your name at the dawn of each day. Many may walk this earth, but only a few like you become IMMORTALISED in the IMMATERIALITY of what is left behind.

Such a shame to learn that a promising, relatively young man is dead after you watch a beautiful documentary. Paul, you have large boots to fill, but I hope one of your local students will fill them.

I first heard of Paul through the film Birds of the Gods.  I was so sorry to hear of his passing.  What a great loss his dying must be to his family and all those who care about nature and conservation.

03-20-2012 1:30 AM -- By: Amanda Cureton,  From: Navarre, Florida  

 I absolutely loved the film Nature: Birds of the Gods. I was so moved by Paul's story and love for conservation within his own country. Though I did not know him, I can tell he had an infectious smile and loving demeanor. What a great loss to the world! Sad to hear of his passing but so thankful for the impact he had on discovering more about so many rare species of birds. God bless his family and those he worked so closely with!

 My husband and I just watched Birds of the Gods....when Paul turned and looked at the camera after witnessing the dance.....I was touched by the sincereity of his smile.  When we read at the end of the program that he had passed we wanted to know what happened and came upon this site.

Thank you.

God Bless

I am deeply saddened to learn of the passing of this great scientist, a contemporary of mine, and a cheerful and wonderful role model for many PNG born and bred scientists. This is a tragic loss for PNG. May his soul rests on the chest of the Creator of all things that Paul and I love.

After enjoying the wonderful documentary on PBS on the BOP and PNG, I was saddened to see the passing of Paul. He seemed to have such a joy for life and his work. I couldn't help but smile everytime he was featured.

It was heartbreaking to learn of the loss of such a devoted young scientist.  In his brief time he made a huge difference in advancing the cause of environmental conservatism.  May he rest in peace.
