In March this year a party of eight led by Peggy Munn sallied forth to "tidy up some loose ends" from previous trips. Top priority was Lake Nerine, followed by Emily Pass and then maybe the Valley of the Trolls. The trip had "some interesting navigational moments".
Seabird expert Richard Wells visited the windswept Snares Islands group in the subantarctic as a member of a ďwhole of islandsĒ Southern Bullerís albatross census team. The Snares provide a home to a number of New Zealandís endemic bird species.
TVNZ reporter Renee Graham spent two weeks on HMNZS Wellington with scientists scouring the bottom of the sea floor for volcanoes. Along the way she visited remote Raoul Island, the emergent part of an active submarine volcano which last erupted in 2006.
While some people may see a jobless, barefoot hobo in a flax coat, I see a chance for survivalist craziness. Jory Akuhata, a diabetic, walked the 3,000km Te Araroa trail, mostly barefooted, wearing rain capes he made from flax, hunting, fishing and gathering along the way, and rediscovering old skills from his Maori heritage. He once caught a rabbit by standing on it.
Can you, or someone you know, keep us entertained or informed?
