In March, three new marine reserves around Campbell, Bounty, and Antipodes Islands were opened by Conservation Minister Nick Smith. ONE News reporter Renée Graham voyaged south on board HMNZS Wellington to do some feature stories. She visited the world’s largest colony of southern royal albatrosses on Campbell Island and had a close encounter with territorial bull sea lions. A presentation not to be missed!
With the General Election coming up in September, hear what candidates Eugenie Sage (Greens), Ruth Dyson (Labour), Paul Foster-Bell (National) and our own Hugh Barr (New Zealand First) have to say about conservation and environmental issues in New Zealand. Kevin Hackwell of Forest & Bird will chair the discussion.
Earlier this year, Stu Hutson and his wife Nora went on what he describes as a “leisurely tramping holiday”. Over 13 days they did some easy to medium tramping trips on the Travers/Sabine circuit, and the Mt Arthur Tableland and Mt Owen Plateau in Kahurangi National Park. They got to walk among some of New Zealand’s loveliest terrain and see some spectacular sights.
Come along and have a say in the running of your Club.
Last year Diana Barnes took part in an FMC walking and tramping trip in Scotland. The itinerary included visits to the isles of Arran and Skye, the beautiful Glen Affric and the Cairngorms, and a traverse of the 96-mile West Highland Way, taking in Britain’s largest lake, Loch Lomond, walks along 18th century military roads, and the famed bluebells of Scotland.
After having his right hip replaced, Peter Laurenson climbed Aoraki Mount Cook in November 2012 to mark reaching fifty. Peter is a photographer who has won NZAC awards and author of the book Occasional Climber: A journey to Mount Clarity which explores parallels between climbing in the mountains and the reflections of a fifty year old grappling with life’s issues.
