Exploring the U.S. Virgin Islands

Named by Christopher Columbus after the virgin followers of St Ursula, and purchased in gold coin from Denmark by the United States in 1917, the U.S. Virgin Islands are known for their white sand beaches, coral reefs, and rum distilleries. Sheena Hudson recently spent time exploring this fascinating group of islands in the Caribbean by foot, kayak and snorkel.

29 July Featuring stories of subantarctic islands

Featuring stories of subantarctic islands

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!

Conservation and the environment: Political perspectives

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.

12 August A leisurely tramping holiday

A leisurely tramping holiday

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.

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 the famed bluebells of Scotland, walks along 18th century military roads, and the shores of Britain’s largest lake, Loch Lomond.
