Climbing the highest peak in each of America’s 50 states
Four years ago, Emeritus Professor Nigel Roberts achieved his long-held ambition to climb the highest point in each of the fifty states of the USA. Some climbs (such as Alaska’s highest mountain, Denali) were tough; others were, well let’s just say ... less arduous.
In 1992, Jim Lynch came up with a visionary proposal for a fully-fenced ecosanctuary, located in a valley close to the Wellington CBD and populated with endangered species of native wildlife. The groundbreaking establishment of Zealandia as the world's first predator-protected urban ecosanctuary inspired dynamic growth of community-driven conservation schemes and fenced ecosanctuaries across New Zealand.
Copies of Jim’s book will be available for sale at a price of $49.95.
Lynne White and six other TTC stalwarts completed the Dusky Track in Fiordland, defying predictions of rain, plodding through thigh-high water on the tracks, and swatting swarms of sandflies at the huts!
