The Waitākere Ranges are closed by Auckland Council to stop the spread of kauri dieback following the rāhui placed upon it by Te Kawerau ā Maki.
After a quick overview of the basics of kauri dieback, our experts on the panel will be talking about the future, answering questions such as:
- What is happening now?
- What’s the plan to save our whole ecosystem in the Waitākere Ranges?
- What’s the plan to save our whole ecosystem in the Ranges?
- What research is being done and what more is needed?
This important topic requires the input of the people most involved, hence why we are delighted that Te Kawerau ā Maki executive manager Edward Asby, biosecurity manager Jack Craw, kauri advocate and Tree Council spokesperson Dr Mels Barton and plant pathologist Nick Waipara confirmed their attendance.
They are all experts in their field with years of experience working with kauri who will be able to paint us a picture of the needs, opportunities and threats for the future.
