Traveling in New Zealand Ziska discovered that the yellow-eyed pinguin is not extinct there yet, only because it was granted dedicated protected habitats. That’s when she decided to become a ranger and study Nature conservation. Since then her passion to make a change went through a lot of shifts from animal activism, over Permaculture, the ecovillage movement and youth education to her work at Ulex as project coordinator. She believes in the power of communities and that true systemic change can only come from a holistic approach.
