    The Earthrace Costa Rica Turtle campaign runs from July until September each year, and is open to Volunteers who gather freshly laid turtle eggs and relocate them to a safe hatchery. The program has been running since 2013, and to date, over 70,000 turtles have been safely hatched and released into the wild.
    Earthrace-2 is a new multi-purpose vessel being built to assist countries with marine conservation, fisheries enforcement, scientific research and public outreach. Based on the original Earthrace trimaran, it will be state of the art surveillance, pursuit and campaign vessel. The design phase is currently underway with a Kickstarter campaign being used to help fundraising (link to kickstarter campaign).
    The New Zealand Long Finned Eel may not be around for much longer. Found only in New Zealand waters, these amazing creatures are still being hunted commercially, despite government and scientific research showing their population to be in serious decline. We are petitioning the New Zealand government to call a halt to this commercial harvest. Click here to sign the petition.

    Aussies kill Monster Crocodile

    The largest crocodile seen in decades in Queensland was found dead over the weekend with a bullet in it’s head. We claim we want to save our wildlife, yet Governments and Citizens alike still show zero tolerance for animals that pose risk to humans, even when in the territory they’ve occupied for millennia.

    Fake News rears its head in NZ Election

    It’s been disconcerting watching the NZ election. Despite our isolation, it seems we are not immune to the fake news cycles that have increasingly plagued elections overseas.

Analysts are suggesting the financial bill may exceed $100bn. A lot of money in anyone’s language. State and federal governments will chip in, […]

I don’t celebrate […]
