I grew up on a northern Waikato dairy farm with parents who were keen on gardening and farm forestry. I tried to befriend a variety of animals including snails, frogs, mice, bantams, calves, lambs and the occasional wild rabbit, some with more success than others. Most Christmas holidays were spent hunting in rockpools or beachcombing on the Coromandel peninsular.
Around mid 2020 I was introduced to iNaturalist through a photography challenge. This website has only strengthened my fascination with nature. I hope to learn more about the amazing and complex puzzle of New Zealand's natural world.
