Winner of the People’s Environment Awards – Campaigner of the Year and Finalist in the Guardian Observer Ethical Awards.
Nicola has been working, for most of her adult life, in the finding solutions. Blessed with common sense, she has focused on finding solutions to the numerous environmental and social problems she has encountered. Since 2000 she has been working in the Ecuadorean Amazon. She travelled from the headwaters in Ecuador and down the Amazon River to Brazil, researching the effects of the oil industry on the environment and the indigenous people who live there.
Her discoveries led her to share her insights in a number of short films as well as the feature documentary ‘Blood of the Amazon’. She co-founded The Amazon Mycorenewal Project, bringing together a group of scientists to research mycoremediation (the use of fungi to clean up contaminated sites).
