Tiritiri Matangi Island TripFriday, 19 April 2013 10:24
On Saturday 30 March eleven students from ACG City Campus went to visit the open sanctuary on Tiritiri Matangi Island with Mr Hodges. After several last minute lunch purchases from Subway and a relatively calm one hour ferry ride from Auckland, they arrived on the Island and headed north for a guided tour. Scenery was spectacular but the birds seem to be keeping the same morning hours as most of our students and sightings were sparse until near the northern end of the main track they encountered a family of Takahe at close quarters (7th most endangered bird in the world).
