About me

During each school term I organise and run virtual field trips for classes throughout New Zealand. We go on trips to study New Zealand's biodiversity and natural environment. Each field trip has background pages so that everyone knows a little about where we're going and what we are going to see. I help teachers get ready with curriculum and classroom ideas. Out in the field I get to work with the Department of Conservation staff and other experts. We talk with schools during live audioconferences. I write a daily diary which is posted each night on the web along with still and video images. I take class ambassadors with me and together we explore some of New Zealand's special places.
