Adele Pedder

Marine Campaign Manager

Location: Northern Territory

Having grown up aboard boats, Adele has been very fortunate to experience the power and beauty of our seas up close and personal. She did school by correspondence from the nav table, explored deserted islands barefoot, swam in wide open seas and on coral fringed islands, sailed silently under star filled skies, and also been forced to return to port due to poor weather on more than one occasion.

Adele wishes that everyone could see what she has as she’s sure that there’d be many like her dedicating their lives to protecting the wonders of our unique coasts and seas.

Adele completed her undergraduate studies in Environmental Sciences at James Cook University in Townsville. Her passion for affecting change led her to a Masters in Politics and eventually to be Chief of Staff with a well respected Greens MP in the Victorian Parliament.

Adele is returning to AMCS after a 10 year absence from the organisation. Previously she was the AMCS NT Marine Campaigner. She is very happy to be back with what she says is Australia’s great marine conservation organisation – AMCS.
