Ingrid Neilson

Communications and Relationships Manager 

Location: Sydney

Ingrid has a long history with marine conservation and the environment sector in Australia. Since her early years, Ingrid has surveyed whales and sea birds on the eastern coastline. Ingrid worked on the South-east Queensland Forest Agreement on policy issues, community campaigning and conducting botanical surveys in South-east Queensland.

Ingrid has also worked in the sustainable energy sector and has management roles on other conservation organisations. She is dedicated to the protection of our precious natural environment, particularly our spectacular coasts and oceans.

Ingrid coordinates our communications, promotions and events, and helps out with fundraising to resource our campaigns. She also coordinates Turning the Tide, our supporters’ magazine, and assists with various campaigns. As one of our longest standing staff members, Ingrid is shamelessly devoted to AMCS.

In 2009 she was officially recognised as a Queensland Champion of Conservation. Since mid 2013 Ingrid has been based in Sydney, New South Wales, where she has become fixated with the resident blue gropers, Port Jackson sharks and albatross off the coast.

Ingrid has been at AMCS for over a decade. She is the heart and soul of our organisation.
