    10/03/2021
    Join us for a evening of sea-themed conversations. Our three speakers for the evening will be Pat Medlicot, Naomi Pukatapu-Waite and Victor Anton.
    In his own words, Pat is NOT a penguin biologist. Luckily he has travelled among Penguins in the Auckland and Campbell Islands, Weddell Sea and Antarctic Peninsula, Falkland Islands and South Georgia Island a number of times between 1991 and 2002 both on Square rigged sailing vessels and more modern ice strengthened vessels and have interacted and photographed many Penguin species during that time as well as other wildlife.
    Naomi whakapapas to Ngāruahine and Ngāti Ruanui. Her background is in geology, geography and she is a values-based science communicator, supporting Iwi led initiatives in science.
    Naomi’s research interests are in the interface of mātauranga Māori and science, where she am currently working on the Moana Project in a project management and communications role, and as a research lead on a project which aims to forecast storm surges in Aotearoa, NZ.
    Victor will tell us about the baited underwater cameras which are deployed every year in and outside marine reserves all over the country. This monitoring provides critical information about the habitat composition, water quality and ecosystem health of our oceans. However, it takes weeks for experts to classify the footage. Come and learn how Wildlife.ai Trust, the Department of Conservation and thousands of citizen scientists are working together to better understand our unique marine wildlife
    In addition to our speakers we will also have a screening of Reef Revolution about Project Reef Life and their work on the Patea Reef.

  • Living with Albatross
    19:00 -20:00
    11/03/2021
    The George Mason Charitable Trust has sponsored two scientists who work on the Auckland and Antipodes Islands to be in New Plymouth to talk about their work with the Antipodean albatross. They will describe how they have attached GPS satellite tracking devices to albatrosses to work out where the albatrosses are dying at sea, and the impact these losses are having on the populations. The Trust has recently sponsored one of the GPS satellite devices.
    Kath and Graeme will be speaking on the 11th March, 7:00pm-8:00pm at the New Plymouth Central Baptist Church, 89 Liardet Street, New Plymouth. There is a koha entry to help recover the Antipodean albatross.
