Dr Alienor Chauvenet
I started working on the hihi as part of my PhD project between 2009 and 2012. Based in London, UK, I was looking at the demography and long-term persistence of translocated populations, using the hihi as a case study. The aim was to develop a method to plan successful translocations under current and future climatic conditions. I principally worked on the hihi populations of Tiritiri Matangi and Kapiti island, but my results have implications for the management of the entire species. I am now working as a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow at the University of Queensland, where I continue working on applied conservation problems, trying to find ways to improve how we manage and conserve species and their habitats.
