Jon took up the post of Northland Regional Coordinator at the NZ Landcare Trust in May 2011, coordinating a range of sustainable land management and biodiversity enhancement initiatives. Jon’s role with Reconnecting Northland is to assist with implementation through the on-the-ground support of projects.
“Regardless of the issues (and the solutions), it is always the people that make the difference. In Northland, it is landowners, community groups and iwi who are the drivers of environmental restoration, with good support from the region’s governing bodies and NGOs. It’s great fun working with these diverse groups, creating effective relationships and collaborating respectfully to make environmental improvements a reality. Reconnecting Northland is a fantastic opportunity to take these improvements into a much larger landscape.”
