According to University of Texas at Austin professor Raj Patel, an expert in ecology and food systems, our demand for meat is driving the sixth mass extinction. Patel is one of many leading academics who contemplate declaring a new age on Earth, called the Anthropocene, since “the fossils of soon-to-be extinct animals will form a line in the rocks of the future.”

Klemm Bell Reunion Day

Terry Klemm and Reg Bell were two of the biggest names in Victorian board-making throughout the ’60s and ’70s and together ran one of Australia’s most respected, innovative labels, namely Klemm-Bell Surfboards.

And now an overdue reunion of surfers, workers, fans and Terry and Reg themselves is on the way – and already over 100 Klemm-Bell boards are registered along with many of the KB shapers, glassers and teamriders throughout the years.

Many attendees haven’t seen each other for 25-30 years so it should be one amazing day – even got Murray Walding’s band the Southside Hodads playing.

Everybody is welcome – Sunday January 8, 10am to 4pm, 40-58 Melbourne Rd. Williamstown Vicco
