Takahē are given annual health checks
Published on 13-03-2016Email To Friend    Print Version

During February the Takehē were given their annual health check. Recently most of the twelve birds were caught and had comprehensive health checks done. Samples were taken by vets from the Auckland zoo, transmitters were reset and birds were given the all-clear. The three that evaded capture will hopefully be caught next time. These checks are critical to ensure the ongoing health and survival of the Takahē at Tāwharanui.

Create homes for birds!
