Last week the Fiordland College Y12 Biology class investigated the biodiversity of the forest and its stratification along transects adjacent to a section of the Kepler Track, between the Control Gates and Dock Bay 😉 📸 M. Jones

Fiordland College Year 12 Geography students use the Kepler for their research assignment. They look at the relationship between elevation, climate, and vegetation. Always great to get out on the track (which is currently very busy because of interruptions on the other Great Walks due to flooding). The students start on the lakeshore at 200m and ascend to the bushline at 1000m. Awesome to have a visit from a kea along the way. Huge thank you to Fiordland Outdoors Co. for your support of this activity and conservation in wider Fiordland!

This morning Fiordland College Y10 students started making Bioramas of stream ecosystems... We are looking forward to see these completed! Fiordland College Y10 Science / Freshwater Study is in its fifth year running. A fantastic effort from all involved. The students will also be heading off into the Kepler to investigate one of the streams... 😉

There are not too many penguins in the Kepler....but they are awesome birds (that act like fish?) Well worth checking out.
