Mapoutahi Trapping Project: Little blue penguin nest count

Tasha and some of our wonderful volunteers did a little blue penguin nest count on Saturday 27th February.  In total, they found 10 individual penguins and quite a few more unoccupied but active looking burrows.  This is really exciting considering the damage done when 30 were killed by mustelids in October 2014.  

Here is a picture of one of the happy little penguins.

We would like to say a huge thanks to Abi for organising the nest count.
