Katipo Stories

At our inaugural Conservation Communicators Hui in Wellington, we ran a series of impromptu talks called “Katipo Stories” where attendees shared what they are working on in 5 minutes or less. 

We saw photos of a dairy conversion in the Mackenzie Basin, heard about a citizen science project to monitor leopard seals, learned how Facebook is being used in Auckland to communicate about biodiversity, and how to engage children with native fish through colouring in.

Because we don’t want to see those stories limited to the walls within which they were spoken, we have decided to launch a blog feature called “katipo stories” especially for our community to share their story in 500 words or less.
