This week it dried out enough for me to extract the camper from its spot. With all the rain, the ground remains soft and the town tyres on the camper mean that it just skids. I drove it to Dunedin on Friday and stayed at Chris and Hiltrun’s place so I could attend the Yellow-eyed penguin symposium on Saturday, without worrying about icy roads.
Elaine spoke of our work at Shag Point and a bit of the history. Chris spoke about the incidence of Barracouta attacks on penguins over the las 30 years. Other than that, we were once again mentioned in the collective called “others”, even though we have the most penguins and the best outcomes for them.
Have a great week.
