'The Subantarctic Islands of Australia and New Zealand

Presented by Trish Forsyth

What was going to be a trip to the Subantarctic Islands (including Macquarie Is) to see the wildlife, turned out to be so much more for Trish.
She was so impressed with the work done by both the NZ and Aust teams in eradicating pests from the islands and the results of that, that it has become a major focus for her when chatting about the trip.Tuesday, 10am, 17th AprilRoom 22, Atherton Community Centre, 42 Mabel Street, Atherton

The eradication of introduced pest species on these islands results in the flourishing of native plant and animal species, luxuriant mega-herbs and grasses, endemic bird species and increasing populations of penguins and seals.
