Hamish Saunders Island Survey Reports

Hamish Saunders

Hamish Saunders was a New Zealand volunteer who died tragically in 2003 while conducting survey work on a Tasmanian endangered species program. Hamish graduated from Waikato University with a First Class Honours and Masters degree in marine geology. He later completed a postgraduate GIS course with distinction. He also achieved qualifications as a scuba dive instructor, was a good sportsman and was talented, not solely academically, but as an all round individual. As an explorer, Hamish achieved in his 26 years much of which most only dream. From Antarctica to the Galapagos, Central America, South America, South- East Asia, Europe and Australia, he combined his passion for the natural world and conservation with that of an interest in local cultures and people. Not only did he travel to these places, but he also took a great interest in the people around him. He touched many lives. Hamish was a remarkable and talented young man. The passion and enthusiasm he engendered in those whom he met and the gentle leadership he embodied is his legacy.

This island survey program is dedicated to the memory of Hamish Saunders and intended as a platform for emerging leaders in marine conservation. The Tasmanian Government's commitment and long-term support for the program was endorsed by the then Minister for Environment and Planning, The Hon. Judy Jackson MHA, on 8 July 2005.

The Trust, established in memory of Hamish Saunders has provided both specialist staff from this department and emerging New Zealand natural scientists with the unique opportunity to visit and study our islands.
