Become a Waitaki Whitestone Geopark Ambassador
The Business & Community Ambassador Programme is for all organisations (profit & not-for-profit) who support the Waitaki Whitestone aspiring Geopark and are proud to be part of the concept.

A business ambassador might be a retail or tourism business that aligns with our values and appreciates the benefit of the Geopark to their business. A community ambassador might be an organisation that works towards a vision that is aligned with ours.
