From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 1:14 pm on 9 October 2017

An exhibition's been unveiled in Beijing, showing off New Zealand's national parks in the hope of sharing tips with China on managing its protected areas.

There are displays showcasing historic documents, outdoor equipment and a three-metre tall giant moa skeleton.

Its part of Lincoln University's five-year collaboration with Chinese Universities to establish a national agency there based on our environmental successes here. Project leader Mick Abbott, associate professor at Lincoln, tells us more.
