Fish of Ōtākaro/Avon River feature in new video


26 November 2014

Future Christchurch has released a video series called Hi-Viz, and one features an interview with EOS Ecology’s very own Shelley McMurtrie!

Hi-Viz is a fun-filled, factual, five part series about the Canterbury rebuild—for kids, by kids. All five episodes were released onto the Future Christchurch website on 17 November.

Featuring hard-hitting interviews with the movers and shakers of post-earthquake Christchurch, Hi-Viz explains what happened, what's going on right now and what the future has in store.

One of these ‘movers and shakers’ is Shelley McMurtrie, Principal Scientist at EOS Ecology, who features in the second half of Episode 3 – Take me to the River.

Kid correspondents Wai and Mei of Te Kura Māori o te Whānau Tahi School quizzed Shelley on the ecological aspect of the Ōtakaro/Avon River Precinct Project, before checking out the blue-gilled bullies, long and shortfin eels and caddisflies that are returning to the river.

View Episode 3 below or go to the Future Christchurch website to view all five!
