Two new team members have come on board for the environmental team. Sophie and Sarah’s extensive volunteering and work based skill set will allow the team to progress and move forward in all areas of environmental restoration.

Sophie has completed a BSc in Zoologogy and Marine Science. Sophie has a diverse work history that has developed her skill set, making her applicable to this position. She has worked as an environmental educator at Great Barrier Reef in Australia and Island Bay Reserve in Wellington, New Zealand. Sophie also worked as a field team member gaining herpetology experience at EcoGecko, Wellington.  She has several volunteering experiences ranging from tropical permaculture in Malaysia to restoration work on Tiri Tiri Matangi in Auckland.

Sarah has recently completed her BSc majoring in Environmental Science and Geography. She has worked on many short term projects that have set her up perfectly for this role. Sarah has experience in water quality and restoration, aquatic and terrestrial biodiversity, sediment distribution, coastal management and riparian surveys.

We welcome our new team members and are excited to watch them grow and contribute to our new projects.
