Ah! The dreaded, climate change and other human-caused environmental changes and the ever-increasing international travel will be the fall of us all. To think that life has evolved and adapted for eons only to finally succumb to global destruction at the hands of mankind leaves me saddened that my short visit was, in the greater scheme of things, part of its demise.
The so-called "rock snot" has not yet been found in North Island rivers and under strict biosecurity rules, people are legally obliged to prevent spreading it.

However, in the case of New Zealand my legal obligation to strict biosecurity rules has been met and I claim complete immunity.
The paper's lead author, Professor Brad Taylor, said didymo blooms were hastily attributed to human introductions or the emergence of new genetic strain because the absence of evidence was used as evidence of absence in many locations.

As to the question of spread?. It wasnt me, I will use the absence of evidence that I ever stepped foot in New Zealand as my evidence of absence.

When asked what I just caught that monster on I showed him. He put on his magnifiers and said, "I can't believe they can see that."
