At a ceremony in London, on October 15, 2019, Phoebe was presented with the award – for her Wander Woman Blog that she had written for the past 18months for Wanderlust. Remarking on the post ‘Sex on the Reef’ in which Phoebe describes the efforts by Professor Peter Harrison to capture coral spawn – aka sex soup – and perform an IVF on bleached parts of the reef – judges said it was ‘eco-journalism at it’s best’.

Phoebe was so shocked by her win that a fellow travel writer had to physically push her onto the stage to pick it up! To read her award winning blog click here.
