Annette Stickler has a wealth of experience. She was a Senior Zoo Keeper at Marwell Zoological Park for 8 years. She has bred endangered species and was part of a team working to release endangered species into the wild including Golden lion tamarins.
Her passion for the Wild led her on a journey to learn and then instruct on Bushcraft. Eventually she set up Campfire Skills where she runs courses and continues to share her knowledge with others.
At just 4’ 10” and with a modest, compassionate nature, Annette is a surprise. For in reality she is one of this world’s real life go-getters. She is truly a tough cookie and when it comes to the Wild, she excels. She has climbed mountains, walked glaciers, trekked through rainforest and stayed with tribes of indigenous people in their wilderness homes.
She is driven to make a difference
Annette continues to self fund her own field research with an ongoing commitment to the subject which she calls her passion.
Annette is also creative. She sketches and writes and is a keen photographer, enjoying cataloging her travels in the wilderness. Being adept at Bushcrafts, Annette can carve and whittle and create baskets from natural materials. She makes fire by friction, and can rustle up a hearty meal over a campfire. Annette gets a huge amount of satisfaction by involving others in nature. "We all have these skills, a natural art."
In 2008 she is set to launch her first range of Campfire Skills Kit products, some of which have been designed specifically for female campers and young people.
Sharing her knowledge
Annette develops and runs courses on Bushcraft for her own company, Campfire Skills - founded in 1999.
Annette instructs adults in groups and on a one to one basis and has considerable experience of teaching groups of children and young people, including those with learning difficulties.
