Ki Uta Ki Tai - Everything is connected

  • Interactions within ecosystems

  • Traditional ecological knowledge

  • Understanding the past to help us deal with the future

A presentation by Gareth Boyt

Gareth has recently joined the council team as Biodiversity Advisor. 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.

"What a fantastic window into the past. Today we saw fossil bones in limestone at two different sites. One set were whale bones. Just awesome that this trail has been put together, maintained and promoted."
