TIPPING SCALES: Almost 200 people participated in Beachlands Chartered Club's annual fishing competition last Saturday, with calm weather making it a perfect day for casting lines in the Hauraki Gulf. The biggest snapper, pictured here at auction with Matt Roxburgh, was caught by Simon Crawford of Maraetai, weighing in at a whopping 8.08kg. Major sponsors Big Fish Bait & Tackle and local businesses donated prizes worth $9000. Event organiser Shane Naughton says: "Everyone is saying this has been the best competition in years." All proceeds from the fish auction go to Beachlands School. Times photo Teri Doran VILLAGE VOICE is a free community notice-board for non-pro t groups.

Easy tiger BREAKFAST with big cats is planned to help raise funds for Sumatran tigers in the wild. Auckland Zoo is hold- ing two breakfasts at its tiger exhibit this weekend where guests will be able to view the cats who will also be breakfasting. A tiger keeper will give a talk about the critically- endangered animal. Following breakfast, one-of-a-kind items will be auctioned and guests will then get a behind- the-scenes tour to see some of the zoo’s most spectacular animals up close. The continental break- fasts are at 8-10am on the weekend of April 6-7 and each is limited to 40 guests. Tickets are $95, or $180 for a double. Proceeds go to the Auckland Zoo Conserva- tion Fund to support 21st Century Tiger. There are fewer than 400 Sumatran tigers in the wild and 21st Century Tiger has been formed under the umbrella of the Fauna and Flora Interna- tional organisation. Its work in the Kerinci Seblat National Park in Sumatra has resulted in the Sumatran tiger popu- lation increasing from an estimated 140 animals in 2006 to at least 177. To book breakfast, phone 360-3805, or fnd details online at www. aucklandzoo.co.nz. More details about 21st Century Tiger is available at www.21stcenturytiger. org.
