Incredible journeys : New Zealand wildlife on the move

documentary heritage
  • Description

    "Many New Zealand animals make long, long journeys as part of their everyday lives. Toroa/albatross can spend years at sea roaming the windswept Southern Ocean, only coming ashore to breed. Koura/crayfish often undertake long walks along the seabed for hundreds of kilometres - no one really knows why. Tuna/longfin eels leave our lakes and rivers to make one final journey into the Pacific Ocean before they die; where they produce eggs for a new generation.

    And who would have thought that tawaki/Fiordland crested penguins would leave our southern coastline to travel up to 7000 kilometres in search of food?"--Back cover
