Candice Dixon is an Australian television host and advocate for wildlife.
Candice’s calling to save koalas has led her to become the Currumbin Wildlife Hospital’s Social Media & Content Producer, giving her the chance to provide a voice for Australian animals at one of the world’s busiest wildlife hospitals.
Candice’s international media experience and her role as a television presenter over the past decade has been extremely beneficial as she has been able to encourage many media personalities to get involved and raise awareness for Australian wildlife.
During Australia’s devastating bushfires of 2019-20, Candice worked with hundreds of media and social media platforms to encourage global support for Australian wildlife.
Candice empowered her media network to save wildlife and as a result she secured support from global brands, a major wildlife organisation, content creators & global media personalities.
Prior to working with wildlife, Candice hosted the Seven Network’s Saturday Disney where she travelled the world to present and produce entertainment and lifestyle segments. Through her reporting work, she interviewed wildlife spokespeople from all over the world. It was during these interviews that Candice learnt about the plight of the natural world and its wildlife.
Candice also attended many international media junkets in cities including New York, Los Angeles, Rio de Janeiro, Sydney, London and Tokyo. During her travels, Candice interviewed celebrities including Hugh Jackman, Ben Stiller, Rebel Wilson, Ricky Gervais and Margot Robbie. It was during this time that Candice developed her media skills and networks which would eventually benefit wildlife.
Candice is proud to have also hosted two series of the Seven Network’s children’s action-packed game show Flushed; appeared on leading Seven Network shows including The Daily Edition, Sunrise and The Morning Show; presented for Seven Sport; and reported from red carpets in Hollywood.
Candice is currently reporting for the Seven Network’s travel show Sydney Weekender while balancing her work with wildlife.
Saving wildlife is everyone’s responsibility. It needs to become mainstream and WILD EARTH OCEANIA is making that happen. I am proud to be a Wildlife Champion and through saving iconic species like the koala, we can start to restore the earth.
