I am interested in urban ecology and have been involved in the restoration of Travis Wetland for 20 plus years. In 2012 I finished a Bachelor of Science at Lincoln University majoring in Conservation and Ecology. I have come late to tertiary study being a 'mature student' but found the experience opened up an interest in entomology. This has lead to a Masters where I looked at insects in restoration sites in and around Christchurch city.

I am now involved in a group which is actively promoting native vegetation retention and restoration in the residential red zone of Christchurch. This area was badly affected by the earthquakes of 2010 and 2011 leading the Government to purchase the properties and clear the area of housing.
