Presentation on New Zealand trip April 14 at 7 p.m.

Join Lees-McRae's wildlife rehabilitation students Monday, April 14 at 7 p.m. in Evans Auditorium as they share stories, photos and video from their month-long service trip to New Zealand.

A group of ten students and two staff members from Lees-McRae spent winter break traveling the north and south islands of New Zealand being of service to numerous rehabilitation facilities and learning about the wildlife and unique culture of New Zealand.

"The presentation will include pictures of the places we went, information on the people we met and some of the inspirational experiences that we had," said Krista Lyle, a sophomore Wildlife Rehabilitation major. "We're bringing some of New Zealand back to Lees-McRae College."

You will have a chance to adopt a yellow-eyed penguin from New Zealand, as well as a chance to purchase photos, postcards and magnets featuring landscapes and wildlife of New Zealand. All proceeds from adoptions and the sale of materials will be used to help protect the endangered yellow-eyed penguins of New Zealand.
