Forest & Bird Evening talk by Zac Milner about Gough Island

September 12, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

F&B logo for NEC

Zac Milner will talk to us about his work on Gough Island.  Zac works for Kaitiaki o Ngahere, an ecological restoration and biosecurity company and recently travelled to Gough Island in the south Atlantic Ocean to help with the management of the invasive pest plant Sagina procumbens – a small herbaceous ground-cover plant that has the potential to smother large areas of ground and out-compete the native vegetation.   Zac was training the field team in weed control methodology, assessing the feasibility of eradication, and making recommendations for future management.
