Tame Malcolm – indigenous pest management
Teachers, register below to join this free online professional learning session on Thursday 23 September 4:00–4:45 pm.
Join the Science Learning Hub as we talk with Tame Malcolm (Te waka o Te Arawa, Ngāti Tarāwhai, Ngāti Pikiao, Ngāti Ngararanui, Ngāti Whakaue) about his work and PhD exploring te ao Māori views and values on pest control.
Tame was raised in te ao Māori, has completed a range of science qualifications and worked in various biosecurity roles. He brings these experiences to his current mahi as operations manager at Te Tira Whakamātaki (

In this session we will chat with Tame about his experiences and hear examples of how both mātauranga and science have been part of his journey.
This session will be valuable for upper primary and secondary school teachers and all people interested in mātauranga, science and pest management.
