Professor Dave Kelly is a population ecologist who has a particular interest in pollination and the survival of native plants. He sees himself as fortunate, because he gets paid to do what many people have to fit into their weekends and holidays. His job does involve teaching and research on the university campus in Christchurch, but he also gets to spend time doing fieldwork. This often means exploring remote locations and observing some of New Zealand’s wonderful animals and plants.
