“Julian Cremona visits New Zealand” – 6th March 2014

Julian CremonaJulian Cremola, retired scientific officer who worked at Dale Fort, presented a fascinating illustrated talk on the wild life and fauna of New Zealand – both the North and the South Islands. He and his wife spent many weeks travelling to remote corners of New Zealand to show the impact of human migration on this remote country as well and the wealth of native plants and animals that survive there today.

His collection of photographs was stunning, from wild and open beaches that went on for mile upon mile in the north to the forests and mountains and fiords of the South Island. Dramatic “Lord of the Rings” country with its connection with Pembrokeshire through a host of recognisable local place names in and around the dramatic Milford Sound!
