Ecologist - 022 4067 028,
Dan has over five years’ experience monitoring biodiversity and in environmental research. After graduating from Loughborough University,
in the UK, with a Bachelor of Science in Geography, and an MSc in Environmental Monitoring for Management, Dan began to develop his skills
working in various countries. This has allowed him to undertake work in Costa Rica, the UK, New Zealand and Canada, monitoring a myriad of wildlife,
including mammals, reptiles, birds and amphibians. Dan first worked for WMIL in 2016 assisting with the Taiko Trust Chatham Albatross Translocation,
before working on other forest, shore and seabird projects across the country with WMIL. He has just spent two years in Canada as a Wildlife Biologist
undertaking migratory bird nest and species at risk surveys, rattlesnake monitoring, as well as bio-acoustic monitoring of resident and migratory bird
species. Dan is keen to use his privileged position as an Ecologist to further species and habitat protection both in New Zealand and beyond. At the
same time Dan is keen to educate people about New Zealand’s unique biodiversity, and the threats it faces, especially through advocacy and teaching.
Using his photography and videography skills, Dan is keen to bridge the gaps between scientific literature, legislative policy and common knowledge,
even more so in light of global climate breakdown and biodiversity loss.
