14 November Meeting

  • Adrienne Tari wears many hats. She is a former member of our club and remains a strong supporter. In her younger days she was a very good rugby player. These days she is best known as co-ordinator of the Twin Coast Cycle Trail.

  • But this week, Adrienne spoke to us about one of her other roles: she is chairperson of the Northland Conservation Board. Adrienne explained that she was appointed to the board in 2015 at the instigation of Mita Harris. Earlier this year she took over as chairperson. The Northland board is one of 15 throughout the country that provides oversight of the work of the Department of Conservation at a local levels. But boards do not get involved in day-to-day operations. Their input is at a strategic level, helping to set the direction of DOC's work in their area.

  • In Northland there are many conservation challenges. Kauri dieback is a huge threat, especially to Tane Mahuta and Waipoua Forest. Introduced species have devastated our native forests and the use of 1080 to eradicate them as stirred up controversy .The board often conducts field trips to find out more about these issues. The next trip will be to Russell State Forest to look at the damage done by predators and whether 1080 has been successful in controlling their numbers and improving the chances of survival for our endangered native species.

  • There's a lot of important of important conservation work happening in our region and Rotarians appreciated hearing Adrienne's insights. For more on the Northland Conservation Board go to https://www.doc.govt.nz/…/st…/conservation-boards/northland/
