"The late Don Chapple is a legendary figure among islanders. Formerly a university lecturer, Don turned his hand to conservation on the island, most notably leading the regeneration project of Forest and Bird's Atawhai Whenua Reserve at Matiatia. He could be seen cycling through Oneroa each morning, a handful of seedlings in his basket ready for planting." - Waihekepedia
