HEAS Member wins Photography Prize

Wild horses and helicopter

Congratulations to HEAS member Elmira Mohandesan on winning the first prize of the Photo Contest “Pictures of Life (Sciences)”, featuring extraordinary and exciting snapshots of research at the Faculty of Life Sciences. Her photograph “Eat the Wind” (credit: Jan Maree Vodanovich) illustrates New Zealand feral Kaimanawa horses being mustered by helicopter, limiting the population size to protect the native ecosystem, in which several endangered species of plants live. The picture will be displayed in the Dean’s office, and Elmira will be presented with a professional print of her photo.
