In the past and to this day, Māori have valued freshwater plants, animals and environments for food, shelter, recreation, and for their beauty and wairua. Students of this programme will be able to carry out basic ecological assessments and monitoring work, and will understand tikanga and kawa relevant to local freshwater sites.
Students will be able to identify common freshwater insects, plants and fish species and will understand introductory biology of these species. Students will be able to transfer freshwater fish and understand the reasons for doing so. Graduates will be prepared for enrolment on the Bachelor of Environment Studies.
