Diva demands, design experiments and technical trials. DOC staff are used to outdoor adventures but developing the Conservation Week website was an indoor, office adventure of its own!
We’re really happy about launching the Conservation Week website so you can find out everything that’s happening for the week. Thanks for checking it out.
Staff from around DOC put in lots of effort to get it up and running. This is the first time we’ve done a website like this for Conservation Week so we learnt heaps along the way and had a great experience trying something new.
DOC’s techies stretched their design and development expertise to meet our high expectations for the site – thanks guys I owe you one!
And our Meet the Locals presenter Nic Vallance, who is happiest in tramping boots getting up close to wildlife, went out of her comfort zone and into the photographer’s studio to be the face of our website, cheers Nic! The photos of Nic on the website are the more professional looking shots; check out our Getting Involved in Conservation group on Flickr to see some of the photos that didn’t make the cut.
DOC and TVNZ 6 have lots of stuff planned for Conservation Week this year, we’re adding events daily so check back to see what’s happening in your patch. TVNZ 6 is showing some fantastic conservation-themed programmes leading up to and during the week so I’ll tell you more about what you can look forward to soon.
