Rotoroa Island Trust celebrates arrival of takahe
25th May 2015
Rotoroa and Auckland Zoo welcomed the arrival of our first
breedng pair of takahe yesterday. The sun shone and the birds,
named Teichelman (male) and Silberhorn (female), headed straight
for the undergrowth, chasing out a shocked weka at the same time.
The pair are the first of up to four breeding pairs destined for
the pest free island in parternship with Auckland Zoo and the
Department of Conservation.
