On 10 April 1968, 14-year-old Tony Coard set out in his small boat Pugwash on a mission to rescue survivors from the sinking Wahine. Fifty years on he looks at the causes of the tragedy and the lessons that were learnt from it.
In May and June 2017, Peter Smith and Trish Gardiner-Smith spent six weeks in Alaska, visiting Denali, Kenai Fjords National Park, and towns along the Alaskan Marine Highway. The highlight of their trip was the amazing wildlife.
In June 2017, Mike Crozier, Sally Marx, Tony Vial, and Margaret Emerson
spent two weeks walking in the Dolomites, a region of spectacular mountains, verdant meadows and charming villages located in the South Tyrol, Northern Italy. The stunning mountain scenery was enhanced by beautiful weather, meadows of alpine flowers, welcoming refugia, and comfortable accommodation.
Aerial 1080 operations are subject to significant controversy, with claims that forests fall silent following drops. Roald Bomans used bioacoustics, a developing area in ecology, to monitor native bird species in the Remutaka and Aorangi Ranges. He investigates this claim over the aerial 1080 operations and presents his methods and results. Roald is the first recipient of the Michael Taylor Bequest Study Grant.
As a travel destination that promised adventure and the challenge of unclimbed peaks, New Zealand in the late 19th and early 20th centuries attracted some intrepid and colourful personalities. Cindy Jemmett looks at what drew four early tourists to the Southern Alps, their experiences, and their contribution to a growing tourism in the mountains.
