WWF-New Zealand Executive Director pays tribute to conservationist Lady Diana Isaac
I heard the news about the death of Lady Diana Isaac over the weekend with great sadness. Lady Isaac was a long term supporter of WWF-New Zealand, and I had the privilege to meet her twice in recent years.
Lady Isaac supplied funds and other resources to help WWF run environmental education roadshows in around the South Island in the 1980s, and was closely involved in WWF’s Christchurch group which hosted a successful fundraising luncheon with Prince Philip on one of his visits to New Zealand. Lady Isaac supported the arts and the environment extensively and her death is a great loss to both.
Her legacy, and that of her late husband Sir Neil Isaac, will live on through the Isaac Wildlife Trust and the many other organisations they supported.
