Our Team

Jimmy is a marine campaigner with the Australian Marine Conservation Society – Australia’s largest national charity dedicated to the preservation of our oceans, for everyone. Australia is his much loved home patch and one traversed continually from those early summers ferrying across to Tassie.

Over the years he’s learnt two major things:
1) How utterly and endlessly amazing and inspiring the world is.
2) That everyone can make a positive change in their life that will make a difference in how the world ends up.

Favourite National Park:
1) Currently (July 2018) it’s Mt.Barney National Park, SE QLD

Tip to turn the tide on Plastic Pollution:
1) Start with any plastic item. Anything. Substitute it out of your life with something natural and sustainable. Then move on to the next. I started with plastic bottles, and then pasta. Giving up pre-packaged ravioli was the toughest moment of my life.

“Every day I wake up with the coast on my mind, with a thirst to swim in the respite of the ocean, to round a corner and embrace the scent of salt in the cooling breeze, to feel the caking of salt on my skin as I dry out after a dip, and welcome the eternal presence of sand scratching away in my bed.”


Claire’s been making tracks everywhere! All over Australia and across the top of Spain and through the UK. She has grown up with an appreciation for the beautiful country she calls home. Her backyard is so diverse and consistently showing her how special it really is. Tassie is the state where Claire’s has made many incredible memories, a place she finds so incredibly beautiful and peaceful that I could look at it forever and still want to turn back for a second look.

Favourite National Park:
1) Currently (July 2018) it’s Freycinet National Park, East Coast Tassie. My favourite hike so far would have to be the Mt. Amos accent, the views are breathtaking!

Tip to turn the tide on Plastic Pollution:
1) As well as getting to explore all these amazing places, we have to preserve them and keep them healthy and clean from plastic pollution. All you have to do is start by saying “no straw’, or take your own reusable water bottle wherever you go. These two little steps helped me to begin a journey to where I feel happy knowing that in giving up plastic there’s one less person producing plastic waste.
