About Nature’s Grace Aotearoa
Kia ora. I’m Gael Ogilvie, founder of Nature’s Grace Aotearoa. Since childhood I have had a huge curiosity about, and respect , for our natural environment. With a couple of degrees in zoology/environmental science, I have spent the last 40 or so years working with government departments and businesses in New Zealand and overseas to minimise environmental impacts.
Following Covid and a milestone birthday I decided 2020 was the time to begin a small business that inspires more action to restore nature. In New Zealand and overseas we are facing a biodiversity crisis. Without more action we risk losing millions of the animal and plant species we share earth with. In New Zealand our identity as a nation and our economy are based on these species and a healthy natural environment..
Through Nature’s Grace Aotearoa puzzles and stationary I want to showcase the beauty of our lesser-known endangered animals in danger of extinction. Our product packaging features information about the animal and what customers can do to help. 10%$ of our sales revenue is donated to conservation-focused charitable trusts. All of our products are designed and made in New Zealand using 100% certified recycled paper and cardboard.
