Waiohine River, Tararua Mountains, Aotearoa
This spring Courtney Mason journeyed down to Aotearoa to conduct collaborative research with Dr. Anna Carr at the University of Otago. Their research is part of a three year SSHRC IDG grant that examines how Indigenous communities in Western Canada and New Zealand are engaged in national park management. Courtney presented at Otago in March while Anna returned the favour at TRU in June. They both then travelled together to the Yukon to present at the 6th International Polar Tourism Research Network Conference in Whitehorse.
The following presentations resulted:
