Forget birds and lizards: in our hot springs, oceans, and mountains, New Zealand has extremophiles, microorganisms that grow where it's too hot, cold, salty, or acidic for most living things. Many could potentially be the source of new biotechnological discoveries. Dr. Lucy Stewart is a postdoctoral researcher at GNS Science specialising in the study of deep sea extremophiles.

The Sources of Our Resources is a series of science seminars from GNS Science to inform, educate and raise awareness of New Zealand’s unique natural resources. GNS scientists will offer insights into the latest research and the challenges and issues around their use and exploitation.

Come along and ask questions to initiate an informed dialogue on where these resources are found and how they will be managed and cared for in years to come.

For more information on upcoming talks in this series see Hutt City Libraries website.
