Where are the Shore Plovers going?
Shore Plovers, a critically endangered species from New Zealand, have been reintroduced to several small islands off of New Zealand that were cleared of predators. A flock of about twenty of the birds keep flying from Mana Island, presumably to the mainland, but scientists can’t figure out where. Have any kiwis on the Kapiti coast seen some Shore Plovers recently?
