Photo of the week: Takahē up close

Department of Conservation —  06/07/2016

Our photo of the week is from a different perspective. Here’s a close up of the colours of the takahē as captured by DOC’s own Herb Christophers.


DOC and leading civil engineering company Fulton Hogan have confirmed a $1 million partnership that will see critically endangered takahē continue to make strong progress back from the brink.

The commitment from Fulton Hogan will help DOC and the Takahē Recovery Programme tackle the next big challenge for the recovery of the species – identifying an ideal site to establish a new, large wild population of takahē.

More information about the new partnership can be found on the DOC website.
