The Govt just announced the purchase of the Stonewall Block, a 121 hectare coastal property near Cape Palliser on the southern Wairarapa coast.
Fully sick mate!
Seriously, that is good news, there is some stunning coastline around there and it will be nice to see it protected.
And secondly, the Karori Wildlife Santuary have just announced that their Hihi population has doubled in the last year. I was involved in a theatre project last year to promote the Sanctuary and it’s a truly cool place to hang out. To all those who live in Wellington who haven’t been there yet, get ya shit together. This is one of the best times of the year to go there as well.
