This superb doco covers some of our unique animals seen on our Lake Cruise /island walk, such as the amazing Cryogenic WETA as seen, (only low altitude location they survive, is at Mou Waho island, due to no introduced predators), not to be confused with the name of the flightless Buff WEKA birds thriving on this island - also extinct on the Mainland NZ since 1920.
On our Alpine Lakes and Misty Mountains Heli Hikes, plus the famous Rob Roy Glacier guided walk, we see the most intelligent parrot in the World - The Kea -
Also the only Alpine parrot in existence -
All these birds are under treat. Eco Wanaka are actively placing and monitoring trap lines on our Heli Hikes at 1500 metres for introduced predators.
On our Cruise /walk, we give YOU the opportunity to plant a NZ Native tree to feed these beautiful birds, to offset your, (and our) carbon footprint on pristine #MouWahoisland to give a unique "Personal give back to Nature" feeling to your special experience of our amazing small, but ecologically diverse and unique country..
