|Tramping pack on my back, |
tackling the Humpridge Track
I also blog about being a volunteer and citizen scientist, such as monitoring geckos on Mana Island and about some of New Zealand's interesting places which I think others would enjoy visiting. Many are around the Wellington region where I live. But tramping or hiking is also a great way to encounter rare native wildlife from blue duck (whio) to kiwi.
There are a few tips on my blog too, activities for children from making snacks to take into the outdoors to thinking about ways to craft ideas. I also write reviews of books, Apps and other resources.
Previously I've been a teacher, publisher and Chief Executive. Now I'm an author, conservation volunteer and citizen scientist. This blog is for anyone who, like me, is intrigued by the natural world.
