I managed Milford Lodge in the South Island of NZ for five summers and two winters. I am also an Outdoor and Environmental Education teacher.
What did you do before AWC?
After taking a redundancy from a community relations position, I built a camper-van and hiked around NZ for five months, mountain biked Canada for five weeks and took my brother on a camping trip up the west coast.
Favourite animal protected by AWC
Green tree frog.
Favourite place on an AWC sanctuary
Camping overnight on Mt Leake and ANY of the gorges on Mornington.
Top three animals you would like to see (or have seen) in the wild
Whalesharks (I randomly got to swim with them in Honduras).
If you could visit any three places on the planet
Antarctica, Iran and Bhutan.
Other interesting stuff
When I am not at Mornington I enjoy renovating and building furniture for my limestone cottage.
