Conservation Minister Kate Wilkinson has appointed a new Chair, re-appointed three existing members and appointed a new person to the Guardians of Lakes Manapouri, Monowai and Te Anau.

Ms Wilkinson has also extended the term of the Guardians from three to five years.

“Teresa McClelland of Invercargill is re-appointed to the position of Chair of the Guardians of Lakes Manapouri, Monowai and Te Anau,” Ms Wilkinson says.

“I am also very pleased to re-appoint to the Guardians, Fred Inder of Te Anau, Ian Welsh of Invercargill and Marc Schallenberg of Dunedin.”
