As part of its strategic plan, B3 is enhancing its partnership with Māori in all activities following the recent appointment of Alby Marsh as their Māori Research Leader.
Director David Teulon says Alby will be creating the Māori Strategy for B3 and is excited by the opportunity to grow participation by Māori researchers.
“B3 will champion the importance and inclusion of Mātauranga Māori in its research programme in a manner that gives effect to Māori conservation and bio economic aspirations,” says David.
Alby Marsh (Ngāti Ranginui, Ngai Te Rangi, Ngā Puhi, Ngāti Hine and Te Rarawa) has over 20 years’ experience in a science organisation, most recently in the role of Stakeholder Relationship Manager – Māori at Plant and Food Research. This has Alby well placed to rise to the biosecurity challenges of Mana Whenua in helping protect their taonga.
Congratulations in this new role – we wish you all the best.
