What we can expect from our new Government - Kevin Hague

South Auckland Forest & Bird is having its largest public meeting of 2017 where you are invited to hear from our Chief Executive, watch a short environmental movie and be in for a chance to win return tickets for 2 to Tiritiri Matangi.

Hear Kevin Hague, Chief Executive of Forest & Bird explain the huge job to combat the crisis facing nature, and the need to prioritise conservation and environmental protection. 

It appears this new Government will be acting on some of our key objectives and concerns, and Kevin will explain what Forest & Bird will be prioritising and what we can expect in the areas of:

•             Water quality and irrigation subsidies

•             Funding to protect the 3000 native species

•             Significant climate action

•             A shift towards a net zero carbon emissions economy

•             An independent Climate Commission.

•             Shifting farms to "more sustainable land use"

Watch the screening of the popular short movie, The Story of Solutions, which explores an economic move towards sustainability.

To assist our branch fundraising, there will be a gold coin door charge and raffle plus we finish our final meeting of the year with seasonal refreshments.
