The Queen Elizabeth II Trust was saddened to learn of "Tiny" White's death on Saturday, 10 March.
Tiny White is remembered for the huge contribution he made to New Zealand and to his local community during his lifetime.
Tiny was one of the Trust's first regional representatives. He was employed when the Trust was formed in 1977 and remained in the role for 15 years. He made a significant contribution to conservation, working with landowners to help them voluntarily protect special natural and cultural areas on their properties with open space covenants.
