EELS(Tuna) – threatened
The long finned eel is New Zealand’s biggest endemic fish.
They are under threat from commercial fishing,
habitat loss and pollution.
They are HUGE .
The Takahē, Notornis, or South Island Takahē is a flightless bird
indigenous to New Zealand and belonging to the rail family
. It was thought to be extinct after the last four known specimens were taken in 1898.Wikipedia
The rifleman is generally considered to be New Zealand’s smallest bird (the equally light-weight grey warbler has a longer tail). It is one of only two surviving species within the ancient endemic New Zealand wren family. Riflemen are small forest-dwelling insectivores, and are constantly on the move, producing a characteristic ‘wing-flicking’ while moving through the canopy and foraging up and down tree trunks.
We could see them up in the trees.
There was a man-made box nest
With the following sign under it!
We could hear chicks in the box!
