Committee Chair, Outreach - NSW
Marnie’s started at the grassroots of the travel industry building her own company, taking people around the world to visit places of scientific interest.
She managed Sydney Observatory before devoting her time to one of her passions: preserving the night sky. In July 2016 Marnie succesfully saw the Warrumbungle National Park designated as Australia's first Dark Sky Park. Since then she has spent her time re-engaging people with the natural heritage of the night sky and reducing the impacts of lighting pollution. In 2017, Marnie was awarded the Dark Sky Defender Award, presented by the International Dark-Sky Association.
