Eco-Sanctuaries : Communities Building a Future for New Zealand's Threatened Ecologies

Author(s): Diane Campbell-Hunt

NZ Natural History

Over the past 10 years many communities around the country have launched ambitious projects to bring New Zealand's native ecologies back to the mainland. By building predator-proof fences around big areas of land the aim is to protect native flora and fauna from introduced predators such as possums, mice, rats and stoats. These projects have faced a difficult balancing act as they try to build and sustain the social and economic support needed. Diane Campbell-Hunt was two years into a PhD study of the long-term sustainability of these ventures when she was tragically killed in a tramping accident in 2008. Her work had assembled the experience of a wide range of people involved with these projects - volunteers, DOC staff, trustees, iwi, employees, community leaders and project champions. After Diane's death, her husband Colin took up the challenge to write up her research, and Eco-sanctuaries is the result.
