New Zealand Prime Minister, Helen Clark, has arrived in the Solomon Islands. Helen Clark was greeted on Sunday by Solomon Islands’ Prime Minister Sir Allan Kemakeza. The visit is a whistle-stop tour of the islands that New Zealand and Australian defence and police helped settle in 2003/04 when civil unrest threatened to launch the nation into civil war.

There Is A Field: Reimagining Biodiversity In Aotearoa
