Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: Native New Zealand Wildlife Through Windows

North Island Kokako

Good morning from another warm sunny spring day here in Hastings.  For this week’s challenge hosted by Cee I decided to show some of the wildlife seen through windows at Zealandia.  First up is actually a stuffed bird – the native Kokako which is a protected species.

Another vulnerable New Zealand native – the Tuatara – also called the living fossil as they are not part of the reptiles and amphibian species – they are thought to be descended from the dinosaurs or some other species that had lived then.

Ok, this would have been better in colour, considering it’s name.  But another vulnerable species.

All these photos were taken through windows of enclosures which is hopefully not the only way we can see these endangered species in the future.
