Janice Molloy
Trust Convenor

Janice has convened the Southern Seabirds Trust since its inception in 2006.

Janice enjoys finding common ground between different groups of people and collaborating to create environmental change.

Until 2005, she was employed by the New Zealand Department of Conservation, and it was during this time that she and others established the Trust, with the knowledge that ultimately fishers hold the key to solving seabird bycatch.

Janice likes hiking, mountain biking and growing things.
