Welcome the Godwits/kuaka at the Ahuriri Estuary

Meeanee Quay, Napier

Welcome the Godwits/kuaka back to the Ahuriri Estuary and hear the Cathedral bells ring. The bar-tailed godwit/kuaka performs the longest nonstop flights of any non-seabird and is the most common Arctic migrant in New Zealand. Hear about these incredible birds and the long migratory journeys they make, followed by a guided walk to view the birds.

Godwits/kuaka hold cultural significance for many New Zealanders. For Maori they were birds of mystery, ‘Kua kite te kohanga kuaka? Who has seen the nest of the kuaka?’

Meet: The carpark, opposite the Beach Inn, Meeanee Quay, Westshore
Bring: Binoculars (if you have them), sunhat, water bottle, suitable walking shoes.
Children accompanied by an adult please.
Event cancelled if wet.
