Dophins and Kiwis
Taumanta and Bats
New Zealand has many dolphin species and swimming with dolphins is considered by many visitors to this country one of the best experiences they’ve had.
Dolphins are large, gentle, intelligent creatures who seems to seek out human company, playing, even communicating. When you encounter them, swimming or diving, and you spend time with them, and having fun.
Of the species, there’s the common dolphin and the large bottle-nosed dolphin which can often be more than three metres in length. There’s the smaller dolphin is less than two metres long but very playful. And then there’s the Hector’s dolphin, one of the world’s smallest and rarest dolphins found only in our waters. There are many dolphin watching and swimming tours. They are all different but the encounters are never less than special. And, to reassure you, the cruise operators take extraordinary care to make sure that the dolphins are not harmed. In many operations part of the tour price goes towards dolphin conservation.
Kiwis are flightless birds native to New Zealand.
At around the size of a domestic chicken.
kiwi are by far the smallest living ratites (which also consist of ostriches, emus, rheas, and cassowaries), and lay the largest egg in relation to their body size of any species of bird in the world. DNA sequence comparisons have yielded the surprising conclusion that kiwi are much more closely related to the extinct Malagasy elephant birds than to the moa they shared New Zealand with. There are five recognised species, two of which are currently vulnerable, one of which is endangered, and one of which iscritically endangered. All species have been negatively affected by historic deforestation but currently the remaining large areas of their forest habitat are well protected in reserves and national parks. At present, the greatest threat to their survival is predation by invasive mammalian predators.
