Robyn Ashton

Congratulations to Robyn Ashton and her father for being honoured in this year's Coastal Otago Conservation Awards.  They have done so much over the years to turn Motorata Island at Taieri Mouth from a denuded rabbit infested, eroding island to a place where the vegetation is recovering, rata trees have been planted and the ground stabilised.

Robyn is one of our weavers and has made a beautiful korowai from muka. She wore this to the presentation of the awards.   We are all so proud of her.  Well done Robyn.
