BLOOD ORIGINS | EPISODE 66 | “KAIMAHI”
Sam “Hamiora” Gibson is a native of the North Island of New Zealand who has taken it upon himself to give back to the land that provides for him and his family. Sam started the Eastern Whiolink project, a project whereby volunteers go into specific watersheds in New Zealand and lay traplines down to kill rats, mice, stoats, and weasels – all non-native species that are decimating the native fauna, flightless birds, and duck populations of New Zealand. To Sam conservation is more than just trapping invasive species it’s about achieving a balance that allows his native New Zealand fauna and flora to proliferate that will allow mother nature to do what she does best. Sam is the first Blood Origins Episode in our New Zealand Line-Up of content.
