WANTED Whio (Blue Duck) sightings!

A whio protection group is carrying out a whio census in the Ruahines from now until June 2014, in association with DoC.

If you are lucky enough to see any Whio, they would love to hear from you. They need to know where and how many you saw. Other valuable info you could give:

• Whether you saw a male (he whistles) or a female (she growls/croaks)
• If you saw ducklings they’d would love to know their approximate size and how many you saw.

Record the information in the DoC Hut Book and/or phone info to:
The Palmerston North DoC office - 06 350 9700 or text Janet 027 341 8945.

Saturday, 8 November: International Day of Action Against the TPPA: Kiwis Fight Back!

There will be a march & speakers starting at 1pm in the Square, in Palmerston North on Sat 8th November. People are invited to meet up at the Cenotaph steps at 12:50 ready to march at 1pm. Then we'll have speeches giving information about the TPPA.

The TPPA will undermine successive governments' abilities to set their own policies, and thereby undermine environmental protection.

Have you heard of the flipping awesome Community Fruit Harvest Manawatu? Here's our grapefruit tree before the fruit was harvested by Chris and taken to be distributed by this wonderful initiative. Check out their Facebook page, especially their About page, to see ways you can help. Another way of saving surplus food that would go to waste and passing it on to those in need. It's a beautiful thing. <3 Leigh <3

Stop requesting ATM receipts. Why destroy trees? Instead, check your balance on screen, write down that number and your withdrawal amount.
