Poll: Will you be joining the Plastic Free July challenge?

Simone Borgstede from Wellington City Council

Today marks the first day of Plastic Free July - a global movement to reduce plastic pollution.
Everyone is encouraged to get involved, even if it's just making a few small changes to your purchases or routine. It's not about a handful of people doing plastic-free perfectly, it's about millions of people around the world doing it imperfectly - and it works!
Will you be joining the challenge this month?

Taita College old boy couldn't find Loch Ness monster, reveals secrets of tuatara instead

Kate Green Reporter from Dominion Post

For the scientist who embarked on a hunt for the Loch Ness monster, and more recently sequenced the genome of the tuatara, his love of science and animals began in the Hutt Valley.

Neil Gemmell graduated Dux of Taita College in 1984, and credited his teachers for instilling a love of science in him.

People probably wouldn’t be surprised to hear he was still chasing answers to this kind of mystery.

“I was a bit of a nerd,” he laughed.
