Founder of Nature's Grace Aotearoa, Gael's connection with nature dates back to her favourite pastime as a child which was to climb the mulberry tree in her back yard. She shared that large majestic tree with the Mulberry silk caterpillars who were busily eating leaves, weaving stunningly beautiful pure silk cocoons to spend a few days in and emerge as fully grown butterflies.
Since then, she has spent four decades working with government departments and businesses in New Zealand and overseas, on solutions to environmental challenges such as climate change, poor water quality, ecological degradation and waste generation. But for Gael, the one driver has always been to protect nature.
