Dung Beetles & the Services They Provide

Cafe Scientifique comes to Katikati

Cafe Scientifique Katikati is starting up.

Dr Shaun Forgie of Dung Beetle Innovations will be delivering the first presentation.

Tests conducted abroad and locally prove that introducing dung beetles is a practical, sustainable and cost-effective way to alleviate many of the problems we face in farming.
Dung beetles offer a remarkable natural sustainable solution to revitalise our soils and pastures, and can rehabilitate New Zealand’s waterways in as little as 23 years – if we act now.

Date: Wednesday 21st November 2018
