Sharing experiences across the Tasman (and boasting a bit). Last week we had a very enjoyable and informative visit from Ed Chignell, CEO of the ambitious Predator Free 2050, a program working to transform wildlife across New Zealand by getting rid of feral predators. It was wonderful to talk with someone so visionary, to hear of other transformative NZ efforts such as their Billion Tree program, and to swap notes on how to provide effective support across numerous groups and individuals. It was also wonderful to show Ed some of the transformative work happening in Gondwana Link, open a few gates for him, and have him meet some of our busy landscape transformers (such as G Link Board Member, and Ranges Link practitioner, Peter Luscombe).
