Due to the impacts of COVID-19 in NZ, the Goodnature team are all working from home. For most parts of our business; product development, finance, sales, marketing and our care team, we are operating as normal, just from home. However, for the interim and due to the specialist processes and equipment which cannot be relocated to homes, as well as for the health and safety of our production team, Goodnature is currently unable to operate our production facility or supply product, as per the guidance of the New Zealand Government.
High on the rugged hillsides of the Paekākāriki Escarpment track on the Kāpiti Coast, Paul Callister and his team of committed volunteers from Ngā Uruora community conservation group, have been spraying weeds, trapping pests and planting native plants for nearly 20 years. It’s not easy or paid work so we were lucky that Paul had time to tell us his story - about what keeps him going and what attracted him to the project in the first place.
Over the last few years we’ve received a string of calls for help from conservation groups and authorities around the world including Hawaii (mongoose threaten their native birds), Scandinavia (mink threaten their seabirds) and England (grey squirrels threaten their trees and red squirrels). Since we’re always keen to find solutions that are safe, humane and provide constant control, we were totally up for the challenge.
