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 formerly worked in forest conservation, 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 world, particularly our spectacular coasts and oceans.

Ingrid coordinates our communications and promotions and helps out with fundraising to resource our campaigns. As one of our longest standing staff members, she is shamelessly devoted to AMCS and the oceans.

In 2009 Ingrid was officially recognised as a Queensland Champion of Conservation. Since mid 2013 she 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.
