Who am I?


As long as I can go outside in all kinds of weather and walk in nature, breathe fresh air, smell the soil, watch the animals, and listen to the birds, I am happy. My name is Jill Leichter. I am an American living in New Zealand and loving every minute. Currently I am a masters student in Science Communication at the University of Otago. I have studied ecology and have a Bachelor of Science from Cornell University.

  1. Hi, Jill:

    I had no idea you had such a cool job — a dream job! I loved reading your blog and will share it with Emma, who spent a couple of summer camp session in San Antonio at Sea World Camp.

    I on the other hand totally failed to capture puffins on film after leaving my camera back in Leith instead of bringing it to North Berwick. Next year! Meanwhile, I’ll enjoy your lovely penguin pix.


    1. I so wish it was my job! Having lots of fun, but the blog is part of a project I am working on for my master;s in Science Communication, link on the right.


    2. Andrea Ozment: does this mean Emma is all Grown up? Oh, dear, I’m sure it does. It’s very cool to see your name — xoxoxo

      1. Sue!!! Great to hear from you, too! Yes, I’m afraid Emma is grown up. She’s the pastry chef at BoMA (I think that’s the spelling), which is on Washington Street. It’s hard to believe, isn’t it?

  2. Hi, Jill:

    Finally I get a chance to drop you a quick line to say how much I love this interesting site. Good work! I like the understated color-scheme and how it allows your photos and penguins to stand out as the stars of the project.

    Hope you and kids are well. Update me when you get the chance and come see us in Ithaca again whenever you can.

    Love, Jane

  3. Hi Jill,

    It’s a great blog & I always check in to see what’s new at Kaitiki. Hopefully all of this fascinating and very child-friendly stuff will be available somewhere when you finish your study?
