Her happy place is developing innovative environmental projects and bridging the gap between science and the public. In 2002 Sheree’s profile was heightened when she picked up three Young Australian of the Year awards: the National Unilever Environment Award, Young Australian of the Year (Victoria) and Victorian Unilever Environment Award. In 2009 she completed a scholarship with the Centre for Sustainable Leadership. An award winning author, Sheree has just finished her fifth book, Melbourne Down Under a stunning photographic book that reveals Melbourne’s best kept secret – a marine environment more diverse and colourful than any tropical reef. Preceding this was the highly successful KamaSEAtra – Secrets of Sex in the Sea, a humorous read about the unique reproductive methods of sea creatures and the parallels they share with humans.
If Sheree had her choice, she would have gills instead of lungs, a breath hold to rival the sperm whale and a sparkly green mermaid-esque tail. Since she doesn’t, she does the next best thing and spends as much time as she can scuba diving and blowing bubbles. When she’s a land lover you can find Sheree working on a range of innovative projects that aim to engage, entertain and educate people about the environment.
