Science Advisor

My involvement with Hihi research began in 1994 and I have been a regular contributor to the recovery group since 2002. I have worked at, or assisted with, most of the current and some of the past Hihi populations through research projects, habitat assessments, assisting with translocations, contracting as a site manager and volunteering. In 2005/06 I completed a Masters project looking at the effects of habitat on breeding success on Little Barrier, Kapiti, Tiritiri Matangi and Mokoia Islands.
