Chris-and-HenrikWe are sad to announce the retirement of Dr Henrik Moller, who will be stepping down from his long-time role as the Te Tiaki Mahinga Kai Coordinator. Henrik was part of the founding team, who worked tirelessly over the past decade to fight for this programme’s mission. He will continue to be an integral part of our foundation, and we will miss his passion, dedication, and insight immensely. However, we wish him the best in his well-deserved retirement!

We are honoured to welcome Dr Chris Hepburn, professor of marine biology at the University of Otago, as Henrik’s successor, who will be taking the reigns as the new TMK Coordinator. The programme will be left in very capable hands, and we look forward to seeing how its new directions unfold under Chris’s facilitation.
