Resilience through biodiversity and awareness

The Byron Shire Resilience and Regeneration Roadshow will be in Brunswick Heads this Saturday, as part of a series of events across the region tackling the question: ‘How do we create more resilient communities in 2021?’

Kieren Perrow will be Byron Bay’s favourite son today after taking out the Pipeline Masters in Hawaii yesterday.

The 34-year-old was not expected to win after being pipped at the post at last year’s championship by Jeremy Flores.

This year he didn’t even let national loyalty get in the way of the victor’s podium, beating Joel Parkinson to the crown.

But Parkinson will take a huge confidence boost from the event heading into next year after recovering from an injury-marred 2010 to finish overall second and defeat 11-time world champion Kelly Slater in the semifinal.
