Daisy Barham

Environmental Program Manager — Climate Change

For over 10 years Daisy worked for state, national and international organisations dedicated to protecting our natural world.

Daisy held a range of campaigning roles where she has led a team of campaigners, organisers and policy officers to take on the key threats to nature. These included climate change, tree clearing and deforestation, coal and gas mining, and overfishing. 

Having worked for the Nature Conservation Council of New South Wales, 350 Australia and the Australian Marine Conservation Society, Daisy has experience working with a range of small to medium environmental organisations with local, state and national reach.
