Thank you and farewell Dr Andrea Byrom
2020 sees us farewell a stalwart in the science sector including five years as Challenge Director at the Biological Heritage National Science Challenge. Andrea is stepping down to spend more time with her retired partner, as well as focus on her board commitments, including the recently appointed role on the Environmental Protection Authority Board. Andrea is currently on governance groups for Predator Free Trust, Project Crimson and Frozen Ark. Trained as a scientist in wildlife population ecology, Andrea has held various science leadership roles at Manaaki Whenua Landcare Research for over 20 years and was the inaugural recipient of the Te Tira Whakamātaki recognition award in 2019.
