I've been studying katipo, their invertebrate neighbours, watching them evolve along with their environment since the beginning of 2011. Initial work (and learning curve) was in the dunes at Ocean Beach, part of the terrific Cape Kidnappers and Ocean Beach Sanctuary, but in 2016 the family shifted to Foxton Beach, so I continue from here, again with the help of my friends...

The focus has widened on this west coast of the lower North Island, to include dune wetlands and estuaries, with some focus on the Manawatu Estuary Ramsar site. katipo ecology continues to be a focus.
