Weta motels, beetle show and tells and biodiversity positive cows: the fourth EcoLincNZ podcast

Mike Bowie has been passionate about preserving and restoring biodiversity for his whole career. He has worked with a number of community groups to achieve this goal. He is also very active in outreach and can often be found with school groups introducing the next generations to the diversity of life around them. Adrian talks to Mike about what got him into this research area, how he got involved with various community groups, how you can monitor for invertebrates in an area to see what diversity you have, how to restore diversity to the Canterbury Plains, Quail Island and Te Ara Kakariki, and how adding native plantings to irrigated dairy farms is a win-win for the environment and the farms.
