Island biodiversity to be celebrated at Dunedin talk
Opportunities and challenges that islands offer as sites to protect our natural heritage will be discussed at an event to celebrate International Day for Biological Diversity, which has the theme of island biodiversity.
The public are invited by the Department of Conservation (DOC) to hear local speakers at a panel discussion at the Coronation Hall this Saturday, May 24th.
Young children will be entertained with conservation activities by Tiff Stewart, Dunedin co-ordinator of the Kiwi Conservation Club. After a provided light lunch there will be a boat trip to Quarantine Island to plant trees and celebrate the scenery and biodiversity of Dunedin’s closest island.
