Tamatea/Dusky Sound heritage sites are important to Ken, but the most significant in his mind is Richard Henry’s house site, considered the birthplace of conservation in New Zealand.


Ken has spent time at this location opening up the tracks around the site and protecting the bird pens for over thirty years. Ken has been involved with two major archaeological excavations in Tamatea, and planning and building the boardwalk at Astronomers Point.

He has spent time on Anchor Island cutting the first tracks for predator protection and was also involved with the first rat eradication project on Breaksea Island.
