Aotearoa New Zealand Communications Officer

DSCC team member Cindy Baxter

Cindy Baxter, based in Aotearoa (New Zealand), is a communications consultant who has worked with global media on a range of environmental issues for over 30 years, first for the NZ Government when it led a successful global bid to ban driftnet fishing. Since then, her clients have been largely in the non-governmental sector, including Greenpeace International, and her main focus has been on climate change and ocean issues. She’s currently providing communications support to the DSCC’s New Zealand bottom trawling campaign. She also chairs the community organization, Kiwis Against Seabed Mining, which has been campaigning to stop efforts to mine large areas of the seabed off the NZ coast.
