In the spring 2019 issue

Forest & Bird magazine Spring 2019 cover

Some of New Zealand’s mushrooms are so rare they could disappear tomorrow and nobody would ever know. We meet some of the scientists trying to save the world’s most threatened fungi in the spring issue of Forest & Bird’s magazine.

We also have an exclusive interview with Conservation Minister Eugenie Sage who talks about her personal journey from environmental activist to the heart of government. She talks about what has been achieved so far and what there is still left to do.

Ocean acidification is a rarely talked about issue in New Zealand and one that threatens our rich and diverse marine life, including fish, shellfish and corals. You can read all about its impacts in Aotearoa’s waters in this issue.

We also travel to remote Maukahuka/Auckland Island to find out about DOC’s ground-breaking research work looking at cats as predators. Meanwhile closer to home a plague of wallabies is threatening native forests and rare alpine plants. We ask why more isn’t being done to get rid of this “hidden” pest.

All this and much more in the spring issue of Forest & Bird magazine.
