Parnell Pigs about to Fly!
With the Parnell 'Year of the Pig' exhibition coming to a
close this Sunday at 4pm, the last chance to bid online for
your favourite pig is now!
With some pigs already fetching
up to $2,000 online, we know that the live auction at
Jonathan Grant Galleries this coming Thursday will be a
fierce 'bid off' and all pigs will fly to their new homes
afterward, happy with the funds they have raised for
Starship - National Air Ambulance.
With over 20 'pigs of
art' to choose from, created by both international and local
artists and celebrities, the Year of the Pig exhibition in
Parnell has been one of the busiest yet.

New Reports: Flood Risk From Rain And Sea Under Climate Change
One report looks at what would happen when rivers are flooded by heavy rain and storms, while the other examines flooding exposure in coastal and harbour areas and how that might change with sea-level rise.
Their findings show that across the country almost 700,000 people and 411,516 buildings worth $135 billion are presently exposed to river flooding in the event of extreme weather events...
There is near certainty that the sea will rise 20-30 cm by 2040. By the end of the century, depending on whether global greenhouse gas emissions are reduced, it could rise by between 0.5 to 1.1 m, which could add an additional 116,000 people exposed to extreme coastal storm flooding. More>>
