Lyndal Davies is also known as the "sun kissed Australian girl of Australia". She’s a wildlife presenter for Animal planet. Lyndal Davies hosts Animal Planet’s Lyndal’s Lifeline where she travels to remote, often dangerous countries to help wildlife sanctuaries that are in trouble and to bring an awareness about the animals that are rare in species. She is one of the most beautiful presenters on TV.
Lyndal’s love of nature began in Queensland, Australia, where she grew up. She spent her childhood rescuing animals and then went to journalism school in Queensland at Queensland University of Technology and spent the next ten years making wildlife documentaries. Most of the time her crew was usually only one cameraman and Lyndal would host, produce, and edit the documentaries herself. It was tough to make ends meet, and the money from each project went straight into the next project, without any money left for. Recently, few years ago, Lyndal got her breakthrough of all these problems. The director of a film company called Mark Strickson saw Lyndal in a small pilot episode of her project. Mark and Lyndal approached with the idea to Animal Planet who bought the entire series of Lyndal’s Lifeline. Lyndal says about being a wildlife presenter as "being a wildlife presenter is no easy job". Lyndal’s boldness and toughness has seen her through some of the world’s most dangerous places. While filming chimpanzees in Sierra Leone, Lyndal and her crew drove into the middle of a riot.Lyndal and her crew were trapped between wild elephants while in Sri Lanka. Lyndal has slept on concrete floors and on plastic sheets in the open air. She’s pushed her truck up a muddy mountain and lived for a week off with no money left in her. "Yes, it's very hard and sometimes scary", she says. "There were times when we'd go days with very little food and barely any sleep to get to the animals. But I'd be lying if I didn't say that it’s been fantastic." Lyndal is still committed to working towards wildlife and she is still planning to continue further more.
Nowadays she is also an Australian zoologist, documentarian and television presenter. She takes part in the series of documentaries called "Lyndal's lifeline". Lately, she was the presenter of "Unearthed" Series 1 and 2, as well as presenter and producer of Shamwari: A Wild Life
Her work aims to popularize knowledge of wildlife.
