Abbie has been producing films since the age of 13. Her first short film about the devastating effects of palm oil production won a place in a national competition. and opened up the opportunity for me to speak in the European Parliament to MEPs. She then went on to establish a production company, Song Thrush Productions. Since then her work has gained national and international recognition.
In 2016 Abbie established the Spend More Time In The WILD campaign, the goal of which is to inspire and empower individuals to enjoy more quality time outside for the benefit of improving mental and physical health and wellbeing, whilst building meaningful connections with the natural world and each other. Over the last three years the project has grown into a worldwide community of passionate and courageous individuals working together to enjoy the beauty of our wild spaces and protect them for generations to come.
