FOUNDER & CEO | TANGAROA BLUE FOUNDATION
Heidi has always been an avid lover of nature and the outdoors, so when she was working as a scuba instructor and started finding rubbish everywhere, her only option was to act. In 2004 Heidi founded Tangaroa Blue Foundation (TBF) as a way of addressing the ever-increasing threat of marine debris in our oceans.
Through the TBF Heidi introduced the Australian Marine Debris Initiative (AMDI), which is a network of communities, schools, industries, government agencies and individuals focused on reducing the amount of marine debris washing into our oceans.
Heidi was named one of the “18 Most Influential Women in Ocean Conservation” in the July 2018 edition of Ocean Geographic.
