Right before the COVID-19 crisis hit New Zealand I did a bunch of work to help communicate the environmental work Pest Free Piha does in this tiny coastal village. Other than a simple website I also put together a little video showing the conservation work I have been involved with during my Piha years. The site and the video were supposed to be showcased in the WSL Piha Pro surfing event but unfortunately the whole thing was cancelled due to the current COVID-19 situation.
I spent the last couple of weeks in Southland as I attended the NZ Coastal Society conference in Invercargill.
As part of the 2019 School of Environment Postgraduate Research Showcase I decided to submit a poster presenting my on-going research.
I teamed up with Auckland-based designer and keen conservationist Shaun Lee to develop a website to help the public identify wildlife tracks.
There are several tutorials and articles out there, but this is what I did when I needed to plot a bathymetry profile across a set of points.
What was supposed to be a weekend counting shorebirds at Rangitoto and Motutapu islands turned into a little lizard survey by surprise.
