Last evening I was invited to attend, at the Auckland Memorial Museum, the launch of the New Zealand Seabird report.
This new report outlines the 'Important Bird Areas' (IBAs) and conservation of seabirds in New Zealand.
It's an extremely timely document considering the lack of protection for our marine environment and the Governments recent rush/panic to offer and open up for exploration and exploitation to the highest bidders 90% of our marine resource.
We were also able to view the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition and see some truly remarkable photography.
Thanks Eliane, a fun event and I am now looking forward to that chocolate cake.
