Orokonui Video Diary

Wild Dunedin —

During the lockdown, Elton Smith, Wildlife Manager, is the only person attending the Ecosanctuary to take care of the daily duties around animal husbandry such as bird feeding and Kiwi and Kākāpō health checks. Elton records video diaries and these can be found on Orokonui's website. Believe it or not, Elton takes these two Takahē for a jog before breakfast!


Check out Elton's diary entry below...
