Mara-Laureen Krause


I’m Mara from Germany. I’m 19 years old and just finished High School. In between High School and university, which starts in October, I am taking part in an internship here at WRT for 2 months.

I am going to study Environmental Engineering, for which I want to gain some experience here in New Zealand. I am hoping on gaining a lot of experience in environmental work, that I can carry on and bring back to Germany to live more eco-friendly.

I wanted to do this internship in New Zealand because I believe there is no better place to experience such a great diversity of nature anywhere else. That’s why I want to take part in different projects like Love Our Wetlands and Composting. I will also be a part of the Community Garden Project for the Sustainability Center.
