    I am looking forward to meeting Dr Goodall in Auckland on 1 July. I believe she has some practical solutions. She sounds very genuine unlike Al Gore who tells everyone how they should live yet flies to save the planet conferences in a private jet.

    I am sure Jane will learn as well as teach as each country is very different. New Zealand did not have any land mammals tell the Europeans arrived. They made the mistake of introducing animals and plants that they should not have. We have to cull certain animals or they will wipe out out unique bird life.
