Originally from Melbourne, Naomi Adams has lived in Ocean Grove for 10 years and enjoys the community atmosphere and beautiful environment. She lives with her senior dog Roxy, and when possible fosters other animals. Naomi is a psychologist and has worked as a counsellor in community health on the Bellarine Peninsula for nine years, and more recently in private practice in Geelong.
Naomi is passionate about both animal and human rights and welfare, as well as environmentalism. She is heavily involved in various forms of animal rights advocacy and activism, and also human rights and social justice activities. She enjoys spending time at the beach, yoga, spending time with her partner, friends and family; live music; reading; and amateur photography, especially capturing the human-animal bond.
A long-term advocate for animal welfare, Naomi was vegetarian for 30 years before becoming vegan and becoming more involved in animal rights in 2017. She has been a member and an active volunteer with the AJP Victoria Western Region group for over 12 months and ran as a candidate for the Bellarine ward in the 2017 City of Greater Geelong Council election.
Naomi believes we urgently need an independent office of animal welfare, an end to the cruel greyhound racing industry, and must ensure Victoria finally joins other states and puts an end to the barbaric duck shooting season. As a priority Naomi also wants to see a total ban on the toxic bait Sodium Monofluoroacetate (‘1080’), to prevent the torturous death of wildlife and domestic animals occurring on the Bellarine foreshores, reserves, and semi-rural properties.
