    Outstanding. Go that team!

    Whio are such entertaining creatures and I just love watching them. If you ever have the opportunity to sit and watch you'll be impressed by their ability to surf the rivers. They're also very curious and aren't too afraid to come and check you out. They've given me so many laughs over the years. This initiative has to be a hundred times better than 1080.

    How do we contribute to the fund? Anyone?

    Last time I went in there were 3 sets of blue ducks and always the same 2 right by camp, pretty interesting watching them.

    Looks like a cracker of a trout stream too.

    Good write up in Taupo paper this week about the Sika Foundations efforts in this. About 30km of streams in Oamaru and Kaipo covered with self resetting traps now apparrently. Great effort and DoC is recognising it as such.

    Best way is to join Sika Foundation. Helps whio and hunters too.
