#35 Geoff Reid - A Guardian of the Natural World
Geoff Reid is a passionate environmentalist, talented photographer and reluctant social media influencer from New Zealand.
He uses activism and storytelling to campaign for fresh water, healthy marine reserves, protecting forests and to help deepen environmental awareness and the need for biodiversity restoration.
In this episode we talk about everything from dirty dairying to invasive weeds, his campaign to save the world's last giant rātā forest, and the power of social media to create change.
Geoff is extremely passionate about being a voice for nature and helping to build a more sustainable future for people and wildlife.

We've set it up so you can choose from:
1. The cost of staying in a backcountry hut in New Zealand
2. The cost of staying in a serviced hut
We thought that was cool because our goal with every episode is to transport you from wherever you are into the outdoors.
Your support helps us to cover our costs and keep bringing you stories of explorers, adventure, and the great outdoors.
You can also support the show by leaving a five-star rating and/or a short review on iTunes.
