Retreating glaciers are one of the world’s most visible symbols of climate change. We talk to some leading experts to find out what Aotearoa’s glaciers are telling us about global warming and why we need to do more to protect our unique alpine flora and fauna from disappearing. Aotearoa’s ‘wētā professor’ Steve Trewick tells us about some newly described wētā species and their unusual lifestyles.
David Brooks meets some clever Kiwis working on a raft of new predator-free technologies and we drop in to see how Ark in the Park’s baby kōkako are doing this breeding season. What happens to the native fish population if you catch too much whitebait? Tasmania found out to its cost but the lessons it learned could be applied to protect New Zealand’s rivers. Photographer Paul Sorrell shares his top tips on how to take great images of native birds and award-winning sculptor Chris Booth talks art, activism, and climate change. Russell Bell explains how to restore an ancient peat swamp and bring back wetland wildlife. All this and much more in the autumn Forest & Bird magazine.
