Takahē Awareness Month on Rotoroa Island
April 01 2019
- April 30 2019
There are eight takahē living on Rotoroa Island. They’re free to roam, so just ask the island rangers when you arrive and they’ll let you know the best spot to look for them. Fyffe and Mulgrew are the newest breeding pair and are usually on the northern end of the island. Teichelman and Silberhorn, with their one-year-old yearling helper Aupiki and new chick, are often seen in the middle of the island. Tupuarangi and Kuini, the hopeful new match, have made the southern end their territory.
