Di Botha

Wildlife ACT Trustee

Wilderness and my place in it have guided my life’s journey. I grew up in a family that spontaneously took off into the bush in an old Willy’s Jeep station wagon; the dustier the road and more remote, the better. Throughout my career I’ve followed my instincts, away from formal learning institutions, into a world of diverse experiences – from film and TV production, to journalism, advertising, brand management and multi disciplinary design.

Challenges facing the natural world continue to engage me, where I take up the role of an agent for change, an agitator and an ambassador. Through deepening my understanding of what moves the human psyche to re-align with our role in conserving our natural environment, I’m able to deploy a breadth of skills for the benefit of organisations like Wildlife ACT.
