She consults exclusively with wildlife and has offered workshops and interventions around southern Africa, Europe, Australia, the UK and USA. Her work includes wild dolphin and whale research and protection, leading retreats and safaris, interspecies projects at organic and reforestation initiatives and numerous public appearances globally.

Anna's goal is to raise awareness and advance the relationships among human and non-human animals, on both the personal and spiritual levels. In her communication and conservation work, she guides people to deepen their connection with all species in an honouring manner, and is inspired by being a voice for the animals and natural environments.
