The traveller

Li Yuen

Li Yuen is soaking up all that Australia has to offer. Exploring your own backyard never looked so good. Though her secret talent is scouting hip cafes and vantage points.

The podcaster

Marlee Silva

Indigenous. Female. Excellence. That’s the vibe oozing from Marlee’s socials. Marlee is founder and co-host of Tiddas 4 Tiddas, a podcast to empower young Indigenous women and is making waves in our ears and around Australia.

The Activist

Laura Wells

Who would have thought a passion for law, modelling, the media, travel, the ocean and animals would land you a successful career as a modern day eco-warrior? Laura combines her passions to combat climate change and to keep our oceans clean.

Noway @equinor What a successful national day of action in @australia thank you to everyone you took part and organised! I’m currently in Norway and having my own National day of action here! We do not want drilling in our Bight! Norway won’t drill in their own waters so keep it out of our Bight. Our environment, marine life, economy, human health and future are too important to risk not only with a potential oil spill but with the future associated emissions. We need to be moving toward a net zero emission economy, move toward renewables and start the transition now! #fightforthebight #nowayequinor #bigoildontsurf #bigoil #oil #climatechange #conservation #surfrider
