Wetlands need water to function and here we are again engrossed in another dry summer with severe drought conditions being experienced in a number of regions.

This adversely impacts on water levels in our wetlands and the biodiversity they support. We cannot ignore that climate change is having an effect.

What can we do about it?
DU needs to continue its good work with protecting and restoring wetlands, increase our membership, maintain the excellent relationship we have with many partners in the wetland conservation area, and expand our fund raising efforts. These are all key areas
which the DU Board will be addressing over the next 12 months.

The dates for this year’s AGM are at the Distinction Hotel, Palmerston North, for the weekend of Friday July 31 to Sunday August 2, 2015.
Look forward to seeing you all there.

John Cheyne
