Karen Pratt

I live close to the Ohawe beach and regularly walk along it. I am a keen photographer and enjoy photographing wildlife and then trying to identify it and learn more about its habits.

I am an honorary member of the South Taranaki underwater diving club - which has received MBIE funding for a citizen science project - investigating the biodiversity of a sub-tidal reef 11km offshore of Patea, South Taranaki. The Project won a Green Ribbon Award in 2017 in the category 'Protecting our Coasts and Oceans'. The Project members, and Project Partners, Hawera High School and Patea Area School also presented in 2017 to the Education and Science Select Committee at Parliament.
