Topic Facing the Tsunami – Environmental Weeds Our Biggest Threat
Come and hear about our biggest threat and the solutions. Geoff is well known as a force for environmental change, with a focus on biodiversity collapse. He has experience in mobilising successful campaigns for protecting a number of at-risk ecosystems, has lobbied for stronger tools for reducing sediment run-off into our streams, harbours and oceans, has been a compelling voice
for animal welfare and shown up inadequacies in statutory responsibility for protecting the natural environment.
As a restoration consultant and Okura resident, his vision includes getting inter-agency and community commitment towards eradication and control of invasive weeds to protect remnant ecosystems such as the Okura Bush, one of the last significant stands of coastal broad-leaved kauri forests of wider Auckland.
All welcome. Light refreshments provided.
