This year's FOSS4G SoTM Oceania conference was a mix of online and physical events scattered all over the continent. In Auckland we were lucky enough to have our own hub which I had the opportunity to join - and I was lucky enough to give a short talk.

Wader Identification course recap

Bar-tailed godwits

I was fortunate enough to spend the last weekend doing a wader identification course at the PÅ«korokoro Miranda Shorebird Centre. After having had to postpone it the last two seasons, I was really looking forward to it and boy, it didn't disappoint. What an epic weekend of birding.

Conservation in Piha

Pest Free Piha screenshot

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.
