Monday 22nd April

Waikato Botanical Society Agm
Catherine Beard - Rangatira Island - an outstanding wildlife sanctuary.

Catherine Beard is the guest speaker at our AGM on Monday. She's recently spent three weeks on a remote island in the Chathams, home to 3 million burrowing seabirds as well as endangered forest birds such as the black robin and Chatham Island snipe. Along with the many Chatham Island endemic fauna, the flora associated with this seabird island habitat is equally rare and beautiful. Come and hear about this amazing part of the world and see some of Catherine's many stunning images along with stories of being a field assistant whose feet are encased in petrel boards all day.

(A brief AGM precedes the talk where you'll catch up with what the Botanical Society has been doing for the last year and plans for 2013-14)

Venue : University of Waikato – S Block. Room S.G.03
Time : 5:30 - 7.30 PMEVERYONE WELCOME!
