Chinese publisher SDX Joint Publishing Co. in Beijing is planning to publish a Chinese translation of Tim’s book The New Nature in 2023.  In 2019 Tim visited northern China as a guest of the China Writer’s Association and Jilin Provincial Writer’s Association. With ten other foreign writers, mainly from Europe, and with Chinese writers, he was taken to Changbai, the tallest mountain in north-eastern Asia, straddling the border with North Korea, and to Xianghai Wetlands to see endangered red-crowned cranes. Communicating through translators and phone apps, Tim talked about nature and writing with Chinese nature writers.

The Eungella leaf-tail (Phyllurus nepthys) is confined to elevated rainforest west of Mackay. In the 1970s Tim contributed to the discovery of new leaf-tail species.
