Lynne Rowe

Lynne is a science nerd who grew as a person when they bought a small farm and learned the joy of caring for animals. As the neurodivergent person they are, they became focussed on this new passion and somehow found people to believe in their vision. 

Lynne is the Wildlife Custodian for HHWR, licensed under the Ministry of Natural Resources. They do their best to encourage a team approach to running HHWR and are extremely grateful to the volunteers who make it all work.
