Individual commitment to a group effort - that is what makes a team work! Thanks to Rana, Viki and the REP team who have worked tirelessly over Christmas/New Year as camp hosts, as well as maintaining tracks, biosecurity monitoring, pest incursions - and that's when they're not responding to all sorts of call outs on the mainland as part of the Rawhiti Rural Fire/First Response Unit. Viki organised a mannequin challenge at all the Urupukapuka campgrounds on New Year's Eve. Check it out here!
Also to DOC for being so onto it in responding to pest reports. Thanks Ange Newport and her pest detection dogs Cody and Macca, Andrew Blanshard and Tike, and Brad Windust from Bay Bush Action with his cat detection dog Milo.
Thanks also to our Roving Volunteers Terry and Ali Goodall and Malcolm and Helen Shaft. These guys have done an awesome job of talking to island visitors about Project Island Song, handing out boatie bags and Malcolm has been replacing signs on the islands - which look very smart! We also acknowledge Project Island Song weedbusters and our monitoring team - who visit the islands weekly and do great work.
