Critter of the Week

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 3:30 pm on 27 July 2018

It’s all in the name with this week’s critter – the ‘NZ fish-guts plant’; because as those that have ever come across it exclaim – “you smell it before you see it!”.

DOC’s Threatened Species Ambassador, Nicola Toki explains that, even with a nose-peg, it is quite a difficult task to give a helping hand to this endangered plant.
