Five minutes with... Anouska Freedman

SunButter ambassador Anouska "Nush" Freedman is a photographer-videographer, free diver, ocean conservationist and all-round legend.  How did you get into what you’re doing? I think my passion for the ocean led me to the path I am on today. I must admit I have done many random jobs (e.g. scrubbing bush drop toilets) which somehow ended up leading me to photography and television for natural history. It's been a wild ride and I can't wait to see where it goes next.    What motivates you? Conservation, the ocean and the great outdoors is definitely what motivates me. I am pretty lucky to live in Exmouth WA which is a hotspot for all things ocean and wildlife. Going into the unknown to see what you can capture every...

It was on the third attempt that I...

I actually started in this job after meeting the awesome founders of Sunbutter Tom and Sacha! I was looking for a way to work in my field (marine biology) and was feeling disillusioned with the world of science and academia. So it was a gamechanger to learn about work as an expedition guide, taking people to wild places and teaching them about the wildlife (and hopefully using it as a platform to create change).  In a broader sense, I got involved in marine conservation because I spent time in the...

How I got involved with an all-women expedition ship

Rachael Walshe tells us about the journey that led her to be accepted onto eXXpedition — an all-women voyage to help clean up plastic in the ocean I was raised in rural Australia, where our reliance on a healthy environment, clean waterways and understanding of natural processes was a necessity to thrive. In the Australian bush, life is spent outdoors and under the sun, much like the coast — except that you can't escape the flies, your dam is your swimming hole and you’re usually covered in some form of dirt. Fast forward a decade and a change of scenery, I found myself on the Sunshine Coast, where everything I learnt as a child had come full circle. My upbringing in the...
