Student Leaders Join Forces in Inter-Regional Biodiversity Learning
Student leaders from Enviroschools in Te Tai Poutini (West Coast) and Waitaha (Canterbury) met at Arthur’s Pass for an incredible few days learning about the rich alpine biodiversity and why it is important to protect this special place. A day in nature's classroom was enough to leave these students brimming with ideas and enthusiasm for further biodiversity work.
