OROKONUI ECOSANCTUARY | INSIDERS DUNEDIN
Orokonui Ecosanctuary is home to some of New Zealand's rarest birds, reptiles and plants. Orokonui is the South Island's largest protected forest and is a short 15 minute drive north of Dunedin. The forest has a number of beautiful walking tracks and viewing points where you might see kaka, takahe, tui, bellbirds, silvereye, brown creeper, fernbird, tomtit, fantail, kereru, grey warbler, rifleman, Otago skink, jewelled gecko and Tuatara! If you're really lucky you may also see kiwi, saddleback and robin.
We talk with Orokonui Educator Tahu Mackenzie and Conservation Manager Elton Smith about their roles at the Ecosanctuary.
