Wetlands, a global day to celebrate them

From Afternoons, 1:35 pm on 2 February 2024

Today World Wetland day.

Ben Goodwin joines Jesse to talk about the history of them around Tāmaki Makaurau.

Ben's a senior technician at Unitec and formally the zookeeper and insect guy at Auckland zoo.

He's also a self-taught botanist with a passion for hidden native habitats in our swamps and wetlands and describes himself as a life-long nature geek.
