The Waitaki Whitestone Geopark presents:


Ki Uta Ki Tai

Everything is connected


  • Unique species and their connection to the Geopark

  • Interactions within ecosystems

  • Traditional ecological knowledge

  • Understanding the past to help us deal with the future


A presentation by Gareth Boyt:

Gareth has joined the council team as Biodiversity Advisor this year. He has a background in conservation, ecosystem monitoring and education with the Whare Wānanga framework and a passion for sustainable land management and healthy ecosystems. He lives on a small farm at Waianakarua with his wife and 1 year old son, where they grow flowers, vegetables and trees. He has a major interest in alternative forms of looking after our land (as opposed to the current “utilisation” of land), celestial observation and sees a bright future for our unique biodiversity through systems of incorporation and understanding rather than the current situation of segregation. Everything is connected...
