Yesterday Kaipātiki Local Board members Melanie Kenrick, Paula Gillon, Adrian Tyler and I joined council project staff and Le Roys Bush volunteers to discuss the upcoming Stage 2 track work at Le Roys Bush Reserve.
While we were there, contractors were busy installing shoe cleaning stations to allow stage 1 (Waterfall Track) to reopen to the public over the next week. :)
The Stage 2 project will begin in a few months and completes the upgrade of the "spinal track" creating a lengthy step-free route that protects kauri from dieback disease and improves accessibility.
In 2021, Stage 3 will address the remaining tracks that connect to the side roads.
Bald eagles, a Weddell seal, a gentoo penguin, a three-toed sloth, a grey whale and a curious racoon are just some of the many animals featured in The Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition, opening on Friday at Auckland Museum.
This week, visitors to the Museum will get their first opportunity to immerse themselves in some of the most vibrant, fascinating images collected this year of the vast and varied nature of life on Earth. The Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition is the world’s most prestigious international nature photography exhibition, direct from London's Natural History Museum.
The longest-running nature photography exhibition in the world, it is known for inspiring curiosity and wonder, while also reminding us of the fragility of our planet and our responsibility to protect it.
Among those featured is the work of 14-year-old Aucklander, Cruz Erdmann, who won the title of Young Wildlife Photographer of the Year for his snap of a bigfin squid illuminating the inky blackness of the ocean.
Don't miss your chance to see up close the images that have got the whole world talking. The Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition is free with Museum entry.

Hi neighbours, warm waters around Auckland are attracting tiny jellyfish towards our shores, causing some people to break out in a rash. Have you been affected by these jellyfish this summer?
