Kristina is passionate about bringing together conservation and sustainable economic development in order to ensure enduring outcomes for nature and people. She followed that passion into conservation after a number of years in strategy consulting. She has since had the privilege of supporting a number of indigenous groups looking after their country across Northern Australia, supporting indigenous-led land management and managing all aspects of indigenous-owned savanna fire carbon projects.
Based in the Kimberley, in her current role, Kristina works with Traditional Owners and TNC's partners across Australia's savanna and arid lands to ensure sustainable conservation outcomes aligned with indigenous community aspirations. She loves exploring country on foot with a backpack and mozzie dome, photographing the landscape and unique wildlife.
Places We Protect

It is part Australia's northern tropical savanna, considered the largest intact savanna in the world with globally-significant biodiversity.
