Happy New Year 2019 to everyone!

After a short break for Christmas and the new year, the Ark office has reopened today! However, it didn't mean that there haven't been any field activities meanwhile, as the trappers carried out their regular duties, lines were baited and another kōkako chick was banded just after Christmas, just to list a few activities. Well done everybody!
