Kate Radloff

Kia ora, my name is Kate Radloff. I’m originally from Wales where I completed a BA (Hons) Communication Studies (my dissertation looked at why people volunteer for the environment) and Post Graduate Certificate of Education. In 2002, I moved with my family to Aotearoa, New Zealand. Since then, I’ve been living (and studying) in the same small rural town near the Motueka River, where I have fallen in love with our indigenous terrestrial and freshwater biodiversity.
I am currently deputy chair of the Steering Group for our local Catchment Collective as well as chair for the Biodiversity and Restoration thematic group. I regularly engage with local farmers and school students to enhance our local biodiversity, whilst working to improve the health of the freshwater around us. Alongside my voluntary efforts, working as a Wai Connector is allowing me to combine my love for education and my passion for our environment. I am very grateful to be able to spend time with awesome people who really do care.
