Kay Griffiths
Kay’s passion for conservation and wildlife management has been strong since childhood, and was put into action when she joined Conservation Corps in 1990 in Nelson, which was sponsored by the then DSIR.  This was a great founding in allsorts of on the ground research work from supplementary feeding kaka and finding densities of wasps and other insects around the Nelson Lakes, to skink and snail surveys in other parts of New Zealand.  Kay then returned to HB and worked for the community relations section of DoC running the summer program of recreational opportunities and on interpretation panels and pamphlets.  After 3 and half years overseas Kay returned to HB, and a ranger position at Ongaonga Field Centre (DoC).  During 6 years based there Kay worked throughout the Ruahine Ranges and Central and Southern HB on biodiversity and recreational projects.  She also took 9 months of study leave to complete a post-graduate Diploma in Wildlife Management at Otago University.  In 2001 Kay took up the position of Program Manager Biodiversity Threats for HB Area.  After 4 years of this challenging role, Kay decided it was time to get back into the field and, with partner Craig Single, set up the Conservation Company.
