Fiordland Conservation Trust Hires New Manager

Fiordland Conservation Trust Hires New Manager

Fiordland Conservation Trust is pleased to announce the appointment of Laura Harry, who has joined the Fiordland Conservation Trust as its Manager following the recent departure of Rachel Cockburn who held the position for 6 years.

“I was attracted by the Trustees vision, their values and their proven track record in undertaking worthwhile conservation projects that wouldn’t otherwise be achieved and their encouragement of conservation through partnership with DOC, individuals, businesses, particularly the younger generation” Laura said. “I believe that encouraging and providing opportunities for people particularly the young to get involved and understand conservation and the issues around conservation is one of the best multipliers to truly create change. We all have a part to play in adding our bit to the ecosystem jigsaw and I truly look forward to playing my part.”

Laura comes to the Trust with extensive experience in the legal and projects fields. Most recently, Laura has been project managing and capital fundraising for Coastguard Queenstown’s new marine rescue centre at Frankton Marina, a position she continues to hold. There, amongst other matters she is treasurer, secretary, has led community and business fundraising efforts, event planning and creating marketing, capital grants and fundraising materials. This background has helped Laura make an easy transition into her position with the Trust. In addition to her prior project management and fundraising skills and experience, Laura has extensive experience as a construction & projects lawyer in the UK.

Murray Willans, Chairman of the Fiordland Conservation Trust said “The Trustees are excited with the appointment of Laura and believe she will bring some fantastic skills to the role. The Trust is now well positioned to grow our programme of work after Rachel’s excellent work to establish the Trust as a respected conservation organisation."

Additional Information
A charity established in 2007, the Fiordland Conservation Trust is a communitydriven initiative supporting conservation projects throughout New Zealand with particular focus in Fiordland, Southland, Wakatipu and New Zealand's Sub-Antarctic Islands. The Trust has worked (and continues to do so) with the Department of Conservation, many different individuals and businesses to bring about outstanding conservation projects. Several have on-going relationships with the Trust; the encounters with some of New Zealand’s threatened species and amazing wilderness environments experienced by these people is having a real positive impact on their willingness to support future projects.
