Abbey started work as Cape York NRM’s Sustainable Industries Officer in December 2018 after graduating with an Environmental Management degree specialising in Coastal and Marine Environments.
As Sustainable Industries Officer, Abbey’s work is focused on encouraging the adoption of best management practices with agricultural and grazing land managers.
Abbey’s passion for Far North Queensland, its people, landscape and environment, developed as a result of two-months full-time volunteering with the Torres Strait Regional Authority.
