Asha Andersen
I have been passionate about the natural world and all its treasures since childhood and I am grateful to have the opportunity to use my skills in media and campaigns to further the goals of Flora and Fauna of Aotearoa. I look forward to working with other dedicated changemakers across Aotearoa to create a brave new voice for all creatures great and small, including humans! We all have the right to clean water, to collect our traditional foods and medicines and to ensure our home and community is free of toxic poisons. We all have a right and a duty to be kaitiaki.
