DOC appoints services managers in South


Three Conservation Services Managers have been appointed by the Department of Conservation (DOC) in the southern South Island.

Grant Tremain has been appointed for Fiordland (Te Anau), John Roberts for Wakatipu (Queenstown) and Ros Cole for Murihiku (Invercargill),

Grant has worked for DOC for 15 years in Franz Josef Glacier, Ohakune and Te Anau, and has been a hut warden on the Heaphy Track. He has been responsible for a range of recreation projects, including building and maintaining tracks, huts, structures and campsites.


John has worked for DOC for eight years as visitor assets programme manager in Wanaka and community relations programme manager in Wakatipu.

John first worked as a seasonal ranger at Aoraki/Mt Cook for the Department of Lands and Survey in 1983-1984, then for the next 20 years as a mountain and ski guide at Aoraki/Mt Cook, in Canada and in Antarctica with the US and NZ Antarctic Programmes. He is married with two daughters and lives in Arrowtown.

Ros has worked for DOC in a variety of roles for 20 years in Invercargill, including biodiversity ranger (assets), on the kakapo recovery programme, and in technical support. She lives on an 80ha sheep farm near Gore, has two young daughters and is married to a Southlander.

Conservation Services Managers are responsible for leading their team of rangers to implement biodiversity, recreation and historic conservation.

Conservation Services Director for DOC’s Southern region, Allan Munn, said the appointments were well deserved and he was looking forward to working with Ros, Grant and John to promote conservation in the years ahead.
