Rebekah White & Dave Hansford - Writing Science

Saturday 21st October 2017

How can we tell vital science stories in a world overrun with distractions?

Recently awarded a QSM for his services to environmental journalism, Nelson writer and photographer Dave Hansford's latest book, Protecting Paradise: 1080 and the Fight to Save New Zealand’s Wildlife, continues to cause ructions wherever he goes.

He's a frequent contributor to New Zealand Geographic magazine, newly helmed by award-winning journalist and editor Rebekah White.

They discuss the health of New Zealand science media with science writer, editor and broadcaster Veronika Meduna.
