About us

Our goal is to help everyone find the answers they need when it comes to climate change.

Following a presentation on climate change at the 2019 Braided Rivers Seminar at Lincoln University, an organic dairy farmer, an ECan biodiversity advisor, and the manager of BRaid went for pizza. We talked about an ideal world, one where everyone—no matter where they live or what they do—would understand the risks posed by climate change and biodiversity loss. A world where everyone would be able to participate and contribute to decisions about their future and the future of their whanau and their communities, because they would have the information, support, and resources the need to take positive action.

Since this is the real world, we decided to create an information portal to help make that a reality. We’ve only just begun, and we’re keen to hear from you about your biodiversity restoration or conservation project, including trapping. If you don’t know how your work helps us to become more climate resilient, not to worry, we can help with that.

Please contact the manager of BRaid, Sonny Whitelaw: [email protected].

This project was developed under the umbrella organisation BRaid, an Incorporated Society No: 2453663 and charity registration no. CC50089. The website was built and is maintained from a home office powered by solar panels and Panasonic home battery.
