We would be keen to offer this position to someone from the Te Ātiawa whānau if there is a suitable candidate that would be interested in undertaking this work.
The position would be 4 hrs paid per day and will cover the 5 weeks from 27th December to 29 January 2021 (approx. 100hrs of work in total). Ideally I would like to have presence on the Island over the busy New Year period. The position would also entitle the ranger to a food and overnight allowance. The accommodation on the Island is in a tent.
Tasks would be the following:
- Meeting island users and interviewing people on their experience and reasons for visiting the island.
- Educating visitors on the islands values and biosecurity risks
- Observing and recording vessel behaviour
- Collecting camp fees
- Ensuring people are aware that no fires and no dogs are permitted on the island.
Please if you have anyone that might be interested get them to get in touch with me or if you have any other questions.

Have your say on transport changes in Waitohi
The Ferry Precinct project is proposing an overbridge at the Dublin Street rail crossing, and changes at the Broadway crossing and the northern end of Market Street. What else might be needed to help people move around Waitohi, especially with the future arrival of larger rail-enabled Interislander ferries? The new ferries will carry longer trains, and increase freight and passenger volumes over time.
