Club Night – Bird Watching in North Korea @ Kelston Community Centre
Nov 19 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

New Zealand has no diplomatic ties with North Korea. We last sent a diplomat there in 2014. The highest-level contact
is a group from the Pukorokoro Miranda Naturalists’ Trust, led by a West Auckland builder, who got to highly militarised
regions to count shorebirds. As Adrian Riegen, the group leader, puts it: “These birds recognise no borders, they don’t
recognise any of those political structures we put up… They go where there’s food in the mud flats. They don’t care which country it’s in.”
