Conservation biology project reports of Cleardale Station and Taniwha Farm, Rakaia Gorge, Canterbury, New Zealand
In each of the previous four years, ECOL609 (Conservation Biology) has been focussed on the South Island High Country, with a residential field course at Lincoln University’s Mt. Grand Station at Hawea. Students have spent the first 3-4 weeks of this paper beginning to understand the ecology, farming systems and the many associated complexities of the South Island High Country, whilst also planning a research project at Mt Grand within their own particular area of specialism.
