The Demise of New Zealand's Freshwaters
Our lakes, rivers and groundwater outside of the conservation estate are in a perilous state. In his 2014 Charles Fleming Lecture, Dr Mike Joy suggests it is past time for scientists to come out from behind their microscopes, binoculars and computer screens and make a stand on the many environmental issues facing New Zealaners.
Hamilton: 7:30pm Wednesday 25 June.
A.G.30, Block A, University of Waikato.
In June and July, Mike Joy will undertake a public lecture tour, visiting all ten branches of the Royal Society of NZ. For details of the tour, visit www.royalsociety.org.nz/events
