Field Ranger

With a wheel-filled past as a cheesemonger and avid cyclist, Rae rolled into Bottle Rock as a field ranger after a series of seasonal DOC contracts. The most significant of these was a weeding stint on Te Hauturu-o-Toi, where she found the isolation and bush-bashing much to her liking.

A great lover of all native flora, Rae believes it her duty to help with mammalian pest control. With its focus on innovation and results, she considers ZIP the place to be.

Rae can usually be found cajoling unsuspecting folks into composting, or exclaiming what a wonderful day it is.
