Nahrel Dallywater becomes newest Auspire Ambassador

  • 27 October 2021

Auspire is delighted to welcome environmentalist, Nahrel Dallywater, as its newest Ambassador.

WA born Nahrel grew up in East Arnhem Land, NT, and South West, WA. Her love of nature’s diversity set her on a path of protecting the environment and supporting sustainability.

After graduating from University of Tasmania with a Bachelor of Commerce and travelling the length of New Zealand, she returned to WA in 1996 and became SW (WA) Regional Recycling Co-ordinator for 12 local governments. She has been a leader in the waste industry ever since.

In 1999, Nahrel received a Young Australian of the Year Award for her role in establishing award-winning waste measures including development of the first recycling collection system for a regional grouping of local governments in Australia.

Nahrel was also WA’s first State Waste Education and Promotion Coordinator, served a seven-year term as an Australian Conservation Foundation Councillor and for a decade was the liaison between conservation groups across Australia and onshore and offshore oil and gas developments nearby Ningaloo Coast World Heritage Area. She has also been a catalyst for projects and sourcing significant funding for not for profit, community and local government.

At 27, Nahrel established environmental and communications business, Dallywater Consulting, which has now been operating for around 20 years.

For Nahrel, becoming an Ambassador is about celebrating the differences and connections to each other and nature, which she considers fundamental to environmental, mental, spiritual and physical well-being. Sharing of stories and networks spark individual and community action to conserve, continually improve and make the world a better place now and for future generations.
