About Us - Rangers

Photo, and a bit about the current ranger
Small highlight of previous rangers?

KH. Whole page to introduce rangers, maybe talk about past rangers. I think something people are generally pretty interested in. JS. OK

The resident rangers, Emma Craig and Jono Carpenter, are employed by the Friends of Matakohe-Limestone Island Society through sponsorship by Golden Bay Cement and the Whangarei District Council.

They live on the island and undertake a wide range of important tasks. To protect the island and its resident fauna, they keep an eye out for any potential fire danger and to ensure no dogs are brought onto the island. They also keep the island predator free, running an intensive surveillance and control programme on the island and in the buffer zone. They liaise with island visitors, take school groups and manage and work with the fantastic island volunteers. They undertake and oversee the weed control programme and the replanting programme and they monitor the recovery and re-introductions of threatened species on the island. Having a resident ranger is hugely important for the island and the Society is very grateful to Golden Bay Cement and Whangarei District Council for the ongoing support that makes this possible.
