Native Snails are Going Extinct: Why it Matters – Bronwen Shepherd

Wed 4 Sep @ 7:00 pm

Free

Bronwen Shepherd of Te Ahumairangi Hill Ecological Restoration will talk about Wellington’s very own snail species, Potamopyrgus oppidanus who lives in Te Ahumairangi Hill (Tinakori Hill). This guy is found nowhere else in the world and it’s smaller than a grain of rice.

Learn about the species, invertebrate biodiversity issues and what we can do to ensure conservation and outdoor activities like mountain biking and tramping work together.
