Jasmine Carey | Photographer and Rainforest Rescue Ambassador
Jasmine Carey has a passion for the ocean. Her beautiful, intimate photographs of the marine life she encounters confirm her deep connection with the sea. She spends most of each year sharing her underwater world–both through her photographs and as a guide and photographer for Whales Underwater and Foto Frenzy. Her work is elegant and spacious, and her signature style takes the viewer with her on journeys into her beloved blue world.
Jasmine’s work was featured in the 2017 Oztek Photo Exhibition in Sydney, Australia; she was a producer on Australian Geographic’s Day in the Life of the Great Barrier Reef time-lapse project in 2017; and she was the keynote speaker on the 2018 Underwater Tour, an Australia-wide speaking tour promoting ocean inspiration adventure and discovery. Jasmine’s work has featured in commercial publications, books, and magazines and; in exhibitions, including the 2019 and 2020 Loud and Luminous project, a major show celebrating the work of 100 of Australia’s finest women photographers, and; in fotoAID an exhibition raising much-needed funds to aid community and wildlife recover after the tragic 2019/20 Australian Summer of Fires.
“Conservation action is multi-faceted. For me, it’s not just about raising awareness, it’s critically important that I support an organisation that delivers tangible and real conservation results. Rainforest Rescue’s work protecting and restoring damaged rainforests has countless additional eco-benefits, not only on land. The renewed forests naturally filter the water that runs into rivers and streams onto the Great Barrier Reef.’’
– Jasmine Carey
In June 2020, Jasmine was acknowledged as the first woman to have ever won the Hamdan International Photography (HIPA) Grand Prize award with her image of a humpback whale and its two-week-old calf off the coast of Tonga.
Jasmine’s Ocean Day pledge 2020 is an open letter to the ocean, honouring it and calling on humans to look after the ocean including supporting on-land initiatives that plant trees, like Rainforest Rescue, that flow on to benefit the sea.
Liana Cornell | Actor, Director, Writer, Presenter, Executive Producer, Reiki Master, Musician and Rainforest Rescue Ambassador
Born in the middle of a thunderstorm in the valley of Mullumbimby, Liana spent her formative years being home-schooled and traveling the world. This early experience opened her eyes to the necessity to bridge cultures and countries, in order to care effectively as a collective for our planet.
Liana studied a Degree in Fine Arts and Media, at the National Institute of Dramatic Arts, and has since gone on to produce multiple documentaries, including the Refugia Series, of which she is also Director, Writer, Presenter, and Executive Producer. She ran an environmental company called Save Our Skins for 5 years, which focused on ecological news, philanthropic work, and the continuation of research to help endangered animals and ecosystems.
Liana presently plays Ania, a lead in Sky’s TV series, “Britannia”, and her passion for performance has fostered her desire to have a resounding voice for those without one. She is also a Reiki Master, writer, and musician, who aims to use her gifts for the greater good, channeling her monetary energy into scenarios that benefit us all. She believes strongly that the invisible, spiritual aspects of our world are in staunch support of what is visible, and that currently, an important vibrational shift is occurring for humanity.
Liana is committed to her most valuable life role – that of helping to heal our beautiful planet, give women a greater voice, and to encourage us all to nurture the very best versions of ourselves. She believes, ultimately, in the power of the good.
