Congratulations to the Wellingtonians of the Year!

Katie Townshend Reporter from Dominion Post

The Wellingtonian of the Year awards' supreme winner has been jointly awarded for the first time in 31 years, with climate change activist Sophie Handford and Muslim community leader Tahir Nawaz sharing the honour. Dominion Post editor Eric Janssen said the winners and their response were a clear reflection of events that dominated 2019. "Without Sophie and Tahir's leadership, respectively, we might fear even more for our future, and struggle even more to find peace after unprecedented pain."

What type of wasp?

The Team from Wasp Wipeout

Hi everyone, today we are linking to two stories, one which explains the paper wasp which we find in abundance in urban areas, and the other which talks about the common and German wasp which dominates our forests and recreational areas. We'll also talk about how to deal with these nasty predators. If you destroy a nest, take a pic and upload your image with the hastag #waspwipeout! But be careful!
