SITE ADVISOR

I’ve been involved with hihi since 2011 when plans were first being developed to reintroduce the species to Bushy Park. This happened in 2013, since when I have been responsible for monitoring the reintroduction and maintaining the project’s databases. In addition, I currently coordinate the activities of volunteers in the sanctuary who assist with various supportive measures (e.g. supplementary feeding; maintaining nest boxes). More broadly, my interest in nectarivorous birds go back to the late 1970s, while working on the feeding ecology of various sunbird and other species in a South African coastal forest.
