Hello, my name is Ann Clarijs and I am from the Netherlands. I study Environmental Science for Sustainable Energy and Technology at Avans University of applied sciences. Being sustainable is very important to me and I love being surrounded by nature. This is also what attracted me to work for WRT as an intern because they work towards a sustainable community. I will be helping out with the different projects, especially Love Our Wetlands and the ecostore. I will also be doing my own project while here.
I hope to learn a lot from the people here about living sustainably, how to preserve and restore an environment and the culture of New Zealand. Living on Waiheke Island is very nice because the people are very kind and the nature is very nice.
