Marnie Lassen

Strategic Projects Manager 

LLB (Hons), BA, GAICD

Marnie’s work focuses on strategic planning, partnerships and conservation finance initiatives for Trust for Nature. She led projects quantifying carbon and other values generated by our covenanted properties, and previously worked in our Biodiversity Offsets. In 2015, she participated in The Nature Conservancy’s Coda and Barbara Thomas Fellowship program, looking at how conservation is funded in North America. In 2017 she was selected to take part in the Kinship Conservation Fellows program in the United States. Before joining Trust for Nature, Marnie worked as an environmental and planning lawyer in Los Angeles and in conservation organisations near Seattle. 

A lifelong lover of the outdoors, Marnie says there is something special about the Australian bush. “I want to know that my kids will be able to enjoy it when they’re adults too. I’m privileged to work with an organisation that’s helping to make sure it will be protected forever.” 

Outside work, Marnie is a board member of Lord Somers Camp and Power House, a not-for-profit youth development organisation.
