Ever wanted to see a 6kg giant albatross chick, or watch the world’s smallest penguin waddle home?

Keen to learn about what sort of pests endanger our precious wildlife?

Otago Peninsula Trust presents an array of special events to encourage keen wildlife watchers during this month’s Wild Dunedin Festival of Nature 22-28 April.

Great deals abound for the keen nature watcher during the festival. There’s daily Royal Albatross Express Tours, a 30 minute insight into Dunedin’s royals, with the chance to see three giant chicks, including the Royalcam celebrity for a fraction of the usual cost. Each evening you can see the world’s smallest penguins pitter-pattering home at Pilots Beach, with a special family deal. Hear how Blue Penguins Pukekura has a project to RFID chip their whole penguin population and learn lots more about their breeding, survival rates and daily activities. Hunt for Pesky Pests in the Glenfalloch Garden and learn what you can do to help our native birds and bugs flourish. Grab a table for the exclusive wild food degustation dining at Glenfalloch Restaurant and tantalise your tastebuds with unusual delicacies. It’s the perfect time to explore your own backyard!
