Mary-Ann Ochota

Mary-Ann Ochota, TV presenter, anthropologist, and a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society, has managed to transform adventuring into a day job.

Mary-Ann explored the Chernobyl nuclear disaster Exclusion Zone for the Discovery Channel, British archaeology for cult TV show Time Team, and real cases of Feral Children for Animal Planet. One of her  research expedition saw her trekking for 43 days with 17 pack camels across Australia’s Simpson Desert, on the hunt for aboriginal archaeology and the rare plants and animals that make life possible. Mary-Ann’s also a passionate advocate of outdoor adventuring for all, writing articles for many publications. 

Mary is an ambassador for the British Mountaineering Council.
