Take part in possibly the world's first Sperm Race and help raise funds for conservation of New Zealand's best bird (in my completely partial opinion!)
Great work Kirsty - her first hihi paper has just been accepted for publication in Animal Behaviour.
Kirsty took advantage of data collected in the field over ten years ago, and combined this with our long-term breeding records for the Tiritiri Matangi population. Some hihi can live for around 10 years so this was perfectly timed!
Victoria is on her way to New Zealand for her second field season. She'll be based at Tiritiri Matangi Island until April 2016, and manipulating the ways that juveniles learn about their environment. If you're visiting New Zealand, make sure you include a trip to Tiritiri to visit Vix and our hihi!
