A farmer in rural Waikato, Stu is also chair of the Board for the New Zealand Endangered Species Foundation. In this TedX talk Stu focuses on the work he has done close to home, on the land that his family have worked for generations. And he shows how other New Zealanders can make a huge difference by doing something in their backyard, no matter how big or small a yard that might be.
The Endangered Species Foundation Chair, Stu Muir is an environmentally focused farmer with a well-respected background in riparian and wetland restoration and education. He is conversant in Te Reo Māori, brings a solid matauranga Māori perspective to conservation strategy, and collaborates closely with key national and regional stakeholders including Iwi, DOC, Fish & Game, Forest & Bird, Dairy NZ, and Predator Free NZ.
