Environment Canterbury.Environmental Policy
I bring to the role knowledge and leadership qualities gained as an ecologist working for the Department of Conservation, a businessperson (running an ecotourism adventure company), a teacher, a manager (Head of Department Special Programmes CPIT), a parent and a volunteer (e.g. Rod Donald Banks Peninsula Conservation Trust and Christchurch 360 Trail).
Using my ecology skills I’ll work for: clean water and swimmable rivers; boosting compliance and monitoring; protecting and restoring native species habitat; building resilience to climate change; exploring a wifi-enabled low carbon transport system and a return to full democracy for ECan.
I am committed to working collaboratively to address the complex environmental challenges created by urban and rural land use.
As an ECan councillor I want to be part of building flourishing communities and finding smarter, sustainable solutions to problems of clean water, clean air and clean transport.
