Today’s photo shows a ferny glade in Iris Burn valley, Fiordland National Park.
Iris Burn was identified as one of the sites where rare native species, such as the critically endangered long-tailed bat, whio/blue duck, kākā, and Fiordland tokoeka kiwi, were under greatest threat from rising numbers of rats and stoats.

Monitoring the effects of the pest control operation will be undertaken in coming weeks.
