The Biodiversity Workshop that was held at Akaroa in October 2009 is now available as a proceedings. The proceedings compile information from the various presentations given on the day and were put together by Mike Bowie, Rachel Barker and Tina Troup.
Over the course of a very successful day, scientists, conservation organisations and landowners came together to talk about conserving Banks Peninsula’s special plants, birds, lizards, fish and invertebrates. The proceedings run to 49 pages and are packed with information on on trapping various predators threatening the native species, how to conserve and/or restore habitats of native species present on Banks Peninsula as well as updates on the management of various endangered species, such as tui or little penguins.
