Wild Auckland: How liveable is the city for nature and people?

Research shows that nature is good for our health and well-being yet 87 per cent of New Zealanders live in urban areas. In this lecture, Dr Margaret Stanley discusses research on the surprisingly diverse range of species living within urban areas and the value to city-dwellers of protecting it. Risks to biodiversity, including intensification and changes to artificial lighting, are also explored along with a look at opportunities for improving nature in urban regions.
