Written by Dr. Robin Kearns, Profesor of Geography, University of Auckland, at Café Scientifique

Robin Kearns discusses New Zealand's beaches at Café Scientifique, hosted by the Auckland Museum Institute, Friends of the Auckland Museum on Wednesday, October 27th, 2010.

the coast as private paradise or public preserve?

Dr Robin Kearns is investigating coastal 'hot spots': localities where there have been proposals for major residential developments.
