Photographer Rod Morris brings the story of Denniston’s unique native plants and animals to Auckland in photographs and his eloquent words. Denniston is where Bathurst Resources, the Australian mining company at whose Wellington office opening CANA, Forest and Bird and other groups recently protested, wants to open up a massive new open-cast coalmine.

Rod will be speaking twice in Auckland:

  • Auckland Museum auditorium, Wednesday 4th April, 7pm
  • Mt Albert Unitec, Thursday 5th April, 7.30pm

The talks are free to Forest & Bird members and Auckland Museum Institute members, and $10 for others.

Rod will also be speaking in the lower North Island and South Island in May and June. Once these dates have been confirmed, we will include them in our upcoming newsletters.
