Meet Sir Graham Henry, conservationist

Meet Sir Graham Henry, conservationist

Wildbase at Massey, New Zealand’s only dedicated wildlife hospital, will be getting a boost on Thursday night with an exclusive fundraising event in Auckland featuring Sir Graham Henry.

The Rugby World Cup-winning coach, who is also a Massey Distinguished Alumni winner, will speak about his experiences in a high performance environment before taking questions from the audience. Sir Graham is a committed conservationist and is generously donating his time to speak.

Massey University Foundation and Alumni director Ms Mitch Murdoch says Sir Graham and Lady Henry are both tremendous supporters of Wilbase at Massey. Lady Raewyn Henry is a Wildbase Ambassador with a strong interest in animals.

“We are so grateful to Sir Graham for donating his time, and helping Wildbase at Massey to achieve its plan to expand the hospital facilities and be able to help more wildlife,” she says. “This will radically improve the care and survival of wild patients and eliminate the need to turn patients away due to lack of space.”

The event starts at 6pm and is hosted at KPMG’s Viaduct Harbour offices. On-street parking is available.

Registration for the evening is $50 including GST, which includes complimentary drinks and canapes, and attendance is limited.

Please register online at: www.massey.ac.nz/massey/about-massey/news/article.cfm?mnarticle_uuid=B768A122-01E9-2A4D-3478-9AFCDDD3F18E

Payment is required at the time of registration. All registered guests will go into the draw to win a case of selected Hunter’s wines.

Gordon Campbell: Classics - Tales From Moominvalley
Can’t speak for the reading end of it but the Moomins ( or maybe the story about Margaret Wise Brown) were the most enjoyable subject to think about and write about during these whole first 50 issues of Werewolf. For that reason – and because the Moomins always reward re-reading – I’ve decided to reprint it. The only added element is a link to an interesting hour long documentary about Tove Jansson. More>>
