"When it rains, look for rainbows. When it's dark, look for stars." Oscar Wilde Despite the uncertain times, KRTK volunteers keep checking the traplines in the Kepler area, like Earth stars in the bush 😉
It has been a real thrill joining your nature excurtions. From looking at leaves and freshwater critters to modelling weathering and creating beautiful art... the kids never stopped impressing us with their observations and incredibly good questions.
Join The Great Kererū Count! "It is NZ’s biggest citizen science project to help gather information on the abundance and distribution of the New Zealand pigeon — also known as kererū, kūkū or kūkupa." 📸 C. Zink - Kererū encounter, Kepler Track - 9 Aug 2020

Thank you Department of Conservation (Fiordland) for hosting yesterday's event! A great day 🙃
Don't these look gorgeous! Tomorrow (Thursday) I will be taking the KRTK keyrings to Te Anau Library. Please, come and collect yours from tomorrow afternoon. Raewyn the Librarian will make sure that the keyrings reach the other Southland District Libraries too. Thank you Raewyn for your help and thank you Southlanders for taking up the challenge!

Ready for a challenge? Comes with a lot of fun 🙃
Hi there! We are loving the photos of your jars 😉 Please, keep sending them in via Facebook and tell us what you find in your miniature ecospheres. Also, if you discover any cool letters, shapes and symbols in nature next time you are out for a walk, we will be delighted to post your pics. Keep exploring!
