There is a substantial amount of land with low rainfall–say between 500 and 900 mm of rain per year. Usually, hepatitis this land is allocated to low productivity uses, sickness for example sheep farming. Could we use durable wood, drought tolerant eucalypts? We could then have diversification of land use, alternative products and even additional carbon sequestration.

When we say dry it looks like this:

I would say that it is certainly worth a try; more precisely, a proper try. There is a history of half-hearted attempts in the matter, so if we are going to have a go, better we do it well or not at all.

Seal in Kaikoura


Last week we did a short trip to the Northern part of the South Island. We spent the first day mostly in Kaikoura, nurse where the best part was visiting the Seal Colony. The best part was jumping between rocks with my sun, more about trying to get closer to the seals.
