Ag Kangaroo Island is one such beneficiary, an organisation which attributes its very existence to Lyn’s vision to bring a number of stakeholders together to create a unified group.

Darren Keenan, Ag KI Executive Officer says, “her contribution to the agricultural sector is immeasurable, having created and supported many profitable and sustainable agricultural enterprises’.

Lyn’s legacy is extensive with over 30-years living on the Island, she has facilitated and participated in a number of voluntary roles and projects, succeeding in long lasting benefits to the region as a whole.

Kangaroo Island is fortunate to have formidable people such as Lyn Dohle. She sets the benchmark in what it means to give your time selflessly to the greater benefit of all”, said Leet Wilksch, Ag Ex Chair.
