Two decades ago, the founders of EcoQuest Te Rarangahau Taiao imagined a learning community where, through education and research, young, motivated people would become catalysts for sustainability.
Te Rarangahau Taiao has layered meanings. It speaks of the questing for the natural world. It also conjures up the idea of weaving relationships to form webs of knowledge for sustainability.
At heart, we believe well-grounded, well-rounded scientists and policy makers have a critical role in the kaitiakitanga of our planet; our programs are designed for this purpose. Good hearts, good minds, good science.
We run a range of courses and workshops for different levels, ranging from high school through to adult education. A selection of our courses are NZQA approved and can earn you credits.

Students participating in this predator free course will learn how animal behaviour is considered when monitoring mammalian pest abundance, how to place tracking tunnels, calculate the relative abundance of mammalian pests and current methods and technological advancement in trapping.
This is a one day course, however an overnight stay is encouraged so that students can collect tracking cards they place out.
