New Convenor for the Scientific Committee - Graeme Taylor

We have a new convenor for the Scientific Comittee:  Graeme Taylor.

Graeme joined with Birds NZ in 1978 when he met other members of the society on Stewart Island. His early interest was in forest birds but since spending a year on Campbell Island in 1984 he has become hooked on seabirds. He has served on the Bids NZ council, Rare Birds committee, compiled beach patrol records and classified summarised notes. He ran the national bird banding office for 8 years. He currently works as a marine scientist at Department of Conservation in Wellington.
