Lindsay Rowe – Trustee, Treasurer and Kaikoura Peninsula Colony Manager

The Trust would like to thank and recognise Lindsay Rowe, Treasurer and Kaikoura Peninsula colony manager, for the ongoing passion that he has dedicated to the Hutton’s shearwater.

Lindsay has donated his time and expertise to the Trust since its inception, and has been a key driver in ensuring that the Trust remains sustainable financially, and most importantly manages our colonies – he is the man behind all the research and translocation projects.

His dedication and knowledge are mind blowing – we consider ourselves lucky to still have Lindsay on board, seeing as he’s threatened to ‘retire for real’ more than once now.

You are a hero – thank you for everything you do for the birds and our team.





We have 7 Hutton’s shearwater chicks at the Kaikoura Peninsula/Te Rae O Atiu colony this season and have now begun advertising these for sponsorship on TradeMe.
