SONGTHRUSH PRODUCTIONS

„We need info on our planet, wildlife and conservation with a youthful perspective.“

Story

During a childhood crammed full of mountain treks, den building, canoeing and animals of all shapes and sizes, Abbie developed a deep appreciation for the natural world. At age 13, when learning about the threats our planet faces, she vowed to do everything in her power to protect it. Next Christmas, she found herself with a magic wand: a film camera! Abbie began filming local wildlife, and at 15, had produced her first award-winning short film on protecting our ocean wildlife from plastic trash! Films on nature, sustainability and historic hiking trails followed. School completed, she took off to climb Africa’s Mt. Kilimanjaro, film a scientific expedition documenting the grave impacts of climate change on land ice, wildlife and farmers, produce a radio series and do an educational speaking tour. Wow!
