Is 1080 Responsible For Sick Cat, Dead Birds, Kaikorai Valley Dunedin

October 29th, 2017

Environment And Health At Risk 1080 is, I am sure, threatening our health, the health of animals, and also the very birds it is meant to be protecting.  It is getting into our waterways, which will kill fish and the life which fish are dependent on for food.  This contaminated drinking water will be a danger to our own health too.  As well as 1080, we have toxic herbicides, such as glyphosate in RoundUp, being sprayed vociferously about the country roads and city parks and reserves.  These poisons also end up in the waterways and affect our health. Today is Sunday, 29th ...

Good Ecology And Conservation And BioLists

March 17th, 2017

Our Global Environment This article is to introduce you to Dr Cedric Woods, PhD, and his BioLists and NatureWise websites. Today is St Patrick's Day, 2017, and a wonderful sunny day it is too, here in Dunedin. I decided to take a bus trip to Portobello, out on the Peninsula.  This is a gorgeous drive along the sea shore, which reminds me very much of Waiheke Island in all its former glory, before the island got vamped up by the greater Auckland Council, and was almost denuded of all its roadside plants and healthful weeds. Kerbsides all over the country, and around the world, ...

Danger Of NZ Sun On Health In Time Of Global Warming

February 21st, 2015

Sunstroke From Sun Lack of Ozone and Global Warming is causing health problems. Summers are now hotter than ever, and the sun's rays more damaging. For the past three years, at some time during the period from Christmas time to late February, I have suffered serious sun-stroke, several times each season, with debilitating effects. Gone are the days of lying about near-naked in the sun, or playing tennis in our latest bikini-top, as we were want to do in the days of our youth. For many of us, swimming attire for the public eye lost its appeal many moons ago. However, we are not safe from ...

Fragrant Organic Gardens For Birds, Bees, Beauty And Medicine

January 12th, 2015

Organic Gardening Plant plenty of Bee-Friendly herbs to feed the bees a healthy diet.  Bee Colony Collapse Disorder can be prevented by avoiding the use of toxic herbicides and pesticides, and by planting herbs which contain natural medicines. And keep some of those wonderful weeds such as Dandelion and Prunella Vulgaris, commonly called Self-Heal.  Bees love these plants, and they are so good for the soil. We are losing our traditional cottage garden flowers and healing weeds.  So make an effort to keep our valuable healing plants by planting them in your garden, and letting some of those weeds grow too. Less than twenty ...
