Rescue: The perfect gift for animal-lovers

Willowbank Wildlife Reserve

Willowbank’s founder Michael Willis has travelled New Zealand, and the world, in his quest to save often-forgotten animals from extinction.

In Rescue, he recounts his sometimes perilous and always riveting experiences with warmth, passion and infectiously laconic humour.

Rescue will make you laugh and gasp, and think. For, as he reminds us, in an uncertain world, the saving of these animals could be the saving of us all.

Satelites Galore

Les from North New Brighton

For those that maybe interested in what happens above their heads there will be (according to Heavens Above website ) two main drifts of Starlink satelites tonight. One shortly after sunset starting about 8.57pm. reaching 25-30 deg. above horizon in the N.E. (nearly 20 of them) but there will still be a lot of brightness in the sky due to the set sun. Another group (about 40) just after 10.00pm rising in the W.N.W ascending to about 80 deg.in the S.W. (nearly over head) and disappearing S. The whole forty of them will take about 10. min from start to finish. This of course is subject to a clear sky. Good spotting everyone.

Residents long for 'hidden gem' Christchurch walkway to be fixed

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

It was once a "hidden gem" for walkers, runners and cyclists.
Now it's a boggy, overgrown, broken mess.

Where other parts of the Christchurch residential red zone have been maintained and used for recreation, the Horseshoe Lake walkway has deteriorated so much since the Canterbury earthquakes people can no longer access it.

Do you think the walkway should be restored? Read the full story here and tell us what you think in the comments below.
