Your small steps can have GIANT consequences on our gentle giants…Brian Gentil spoke to Vivienne McLean from the Kauri 2000 Trust on Gold FM’s Breakfast Show and discussed Kauri Dieback Disease, which is killing our native trees. She explained how the battle to control micro-organisms that are so lethal to our Kauri is going.

Kauri 2000 wants to spread the word about avoiding the spread of Kauri Dieback Disease by spreading the message about the importance of ‘coming clean’ to the Coromandel bush.

It’s important new visitors and locals know not to go near Kauri roots, which extend way beyond the canopy of the trees and remember how to stop the spread, and what they need to do when visiting our Coromandel forests.

Vivienne gave some good tips about how your small steps can save our Kauri - please listen in to hear them.

Vivienne also mentioned some of the walks where Kauri can be seen and talked about the cleaning stations available at the walks. Please use them and follow the directions.To find out more about Kauri Dieback visit https://www.kauridieback.co.nz/ and to find out more about the Kauri 2000 Trust and how you can help visit https://www.kauri2000.co.nz/
