Upcoming Speaker Ed Chignell: CEO Predator Free 2050

Pakuranga Rotary has been fortunate to secure this highly respected businessman and conservationist to speak on the topic of Predator Free 2050.   The opportunity to join us at this event is extended to Rotary clubs as a combined group along with any other interested parties who would like to grab at the chance to get involved in this exciting initiative on Monday the 24 of September, at the Waipuna Convention Centre.

Ed has a strong commercial background and a ton of strategic nous. He was appointed CEO of this new nationwide initiative in August 2017. He is a life member of the NZ Arboriculture Association and the recipient of the Ron Flook Award for services to NZ.

He was co- founder of Treescape and for 37 years, was CEO of that large company.

Ed will give us an overview of the objectives and a practical look inside this mammoth task to rid NZ of predators. This is a perfect umbrella view for our Rotary and local schools’ push to become pest free in their areas.

Ed gives very few public addresses, so come and join us and make the most of this opportunity.
