Anne has worked at ICWT for the past 28 years and during this time has assisted the Trust to carry on the vision and legacy of the late Sir Neil and Lady Isaac in conservation, including the captive breeding of some of New Zealand’s endangered species. While working for the Trust, Anne has developed and managed the only captive breeding facility for kākāriki karaka/orange fronted parakeet, pioneering
methods to incubate eggs and raise chicks, to re-establish kākāriki karaka populations back into the wild. Anne has also made significant contributions in developing captive breeding programmes and holding protocols to support ICWT conservation efforts for the kakī/black stilt, whio/blue duck, pāteke/brown teal, tūturuatu/shore plover and many others, playing a key role in their preservation from extinction.
