Co-coordinator - GOLD COAST
After moving to Australia, Niamh developed a love for the ocean. From her travels grew an appreciation for the natural world, and recognition of rapid environmental degradation as a result of modern day living.
Niamh holds degrees in Law and Arts (majoring in Economics) from the University of Queensland, and has both studied and worked in the field of environmental law. She is passionate about efforts to lobby council and government on issues of environmental policy and fostering corporate responsibility for pollution.
Niamh has volunteered for a number of not-for-profit organisations in Australia, South America, Asia and Turkey. Her most memorable experiences were in the Bolivian Amazon assisting with conservation efforts for the local capuchin monkey population, and helping reducing plastic usage in a coastal tourist town in northern Ecuador. In one of her more elaborate schemes, Niamh drove 4000km across India in a tuk-tuk to support Cool Earth, a not-for profit which works to stop deforestation.
In her spare time Niamh enjoys surfing, snorkeling, film photography and adventuring to new parts of Australia and the world.
