A remarkable character, David has won awards for his work as a scientist, an environmentalist, and as a broadcaster. You may have heard his "From Naked Ape to Superspecies" when it was broadcast on RadioNZ last year.

He is adept at explaining the complexities of science in a compelling and comprehensible manner, and his work in sustainable ecology has been celebrated by such diverse groups as the United Na-tions and Canada's First Nations people - in fact, two First Nation tribes have formally adopted him. More than this, David has a vision for the planet that sees multi-national corporations and environmental groups working happily together, side by side. In his new book "Good News for a Change" he insists that in some cases this vision is already a reality. “Good News for a Change” is published by Allen & Unwin and available from all good bookstores. RRP$36.95
