New Honorary Ranger Appointed

June 10, 2014

It is with great pleasure that we announce the appointment of Colin Shore as Honorary Ranger of Pigeon Bush Reserve. Colin is ex army, from the Wairarapa, and brings with him a great depth of skills and experience including planning, pest control, track maintenance and wetland restoration. He is Chairman of Forest & Bird, Wairarapa and a member of the Ornithological Society. His interests include tramping, hunting, kayaking and photography.

Colin is a self confessed bush basher who loves the outdoors and sees this project as a great challenge. We welcome Colin to the role and believe he is well and truly up to the challenge!

As many of you will know the position became vacant following the untimely passing of Neil Challands who died earlier this year at Wellington Hospital after a short illness, aged 55 years. Neil was highly respected and was an outstanding Honorary Ranger. Although Colin has big boots to fill we believe we have found someone capable of continuing and building on Neil’s hard work.
