Sze Wing, ecologist and wildlife photographer is heroically working in thick bush, tracking predators on remote D’Urville Island in the Marlborough Sounds.

Sze has given her enthusiasm and knowledge about her conservation work freely to our visiting groups over the last season. She has given informal talks on her work in a way that is both informative and delightful.

Her work will contribute to the body of data that will assist community led conservation group Rangitoto Bird Song in its goal to eradicate all stoats on the island. A goal strengthened by the fact that the island is currently free of both possum and ship rat.

We wanted to thank Sze for the value she has added to our tours over the season and the birds she has potentially saved. Sze has been duct taping holes in her wet weather gear to keep dry, so we have given her a voucher for replacement gear with macpac.

So while you are sitting near the heater or sipping your cappuccino in your favourite café, spare a thought for Sze on the steep rugged hillside of D’Urville Island, doing ‘battle for the birds’.
