UC Connect public lecture: Who speaks for the trees? The possible futures of conservation

In an upcoming UC Connect public lecture, Who speaks for the trees? The possible futures of conservation, University of Canterbury law academic David Round considers the choices ahead for the public conservation estate, native species, the Department of Conservation and environmental law itself in an age of increasingly desperate resource exploitation, environmental degradation and international uncertainty.

A keen tramper, he is a former national president of Federated Mountain Clubs and former member of the Canterbury/ Aoraki Conservation Board. He is currently a trustee of the Maurice White Conservation Trust and the Canterbury Te Araroa Trust.

UC Connect public lecture: Who speaks for the trees? The possible futures of conservation, law lecturer David Round, UC School of Law, 7pm – 8pm, Tuesday 22 August at the University of Canterbury.
