Join Forest & Bird's Dunedin Branch for a public talk about this year's mega-mast by Kevin Hackwell.

This year our native forests are faced with a mega-mast. But what does that mean for our native wildlife? During a mast year, native trees produce huge quantities of fruit and seed providing lots of food for rats and mice. This, in turn, boosts introduced predator numbers, that - when their food supply runs out - start to feed on native birds and other species.

Kevin Hackwell, Forest & Bird’s Chief Conservation Advisor, will be speaking about the 2019 mega-mast and what can be done to reduce its impact on our native wildlife and wild places.
