About Fiona Coyne
Between seasons of the show Fiona takes time to indulge her other interests such as her addiction to crossword puzzles and writing, as well as spending as much time as possible up on the mountain, on the beach, in the forest, along the green belts – accompanied by her doting border collies.
Evenings are spent either at the opera or theatre or else fine dining is a pleasure in itself.
Fiona may not suffer fools or wise guys gladly, but she is passionate about the conservation of our country’s fauna and flora. Her concern for wildlife and animals is focused in two areas, namely the conservation and humane treatment of our own African wildlife and the humane treatment of domestic pets and agricultural livestock.
Fiona spent several years in Kenya creating awareness for The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, an organisation that rears, and rehabilitates to the wild, orphaned Elephants and Black Rhino.
Fiona’s other interests include flying, sky-diving and great champagne.
Fiona is married and lives in Cape Town.
