Te Kete Pounamu ki Ōtepoti steering rōpū members embarked on a day trip to The Royal Albatross Centre on the Otago Peninsula in Dunedin on the 10 July 2020. Our rōpū had a great time together, connecting outside of mahi and strengthening the relationships within our steering rōpū. Unfortunately, the only Toroa Ingoingo royal albatross, (Diomedea epomophora – a very large oceanic bird with long, narrow wings) we saw were too far away to get a decent photograph. We stopped at McDonalds for a bite beforehand and grabbed a cuppa coffee and biscuit afterwards also. Overall, it was a beautiful day.
The Rangatira in the photograph is Korako Karetai the landowner and Chief of all this area.
