Planting for penguins with Highlanders!
Sunday 15th May, 2011Thanks to Speight's Environment Fund, the Yellow-eyed Penguin Trust Nursery will kick off their planting season this year with $5,000 of trees and shrubs to be planted at Tavora Reserve, East Otago, on Sunday 22 May at 10 am. Join in and help restore yellow-eyed penguin habitats with the Trust and volunteers on this International Day of Biological Diversity. And because conservation is important to Southern Men, some of the Highlanders including Ben Smith will be there to help out.
