Pukenui Western Hills Forest Trust
G'day Whangarei, Ranger Ben here
Just a quick bit of news, we have had some kiwi scat found at Barge park. This is a kiwi who has since had its transmitter removed and is now wild. We humbly ask the awesome people of Whangarei if you walk your dogs at Barge park please keep them on a leed, especially on the bottom paddock adjacent to the forest. With your continued support our kiwi will thrive.
Has anyone ever seen something like the image below in an older Kiwi home? Does anyone remember them from their childhood? These strange slots allowed you to rid yourself of an old razor and never think of it again...but it also meant, years down the track, that someone renovating would be in for a nasty, rusty surprise.
I'm certain I've seen something like this here in Aotearoa-NZ, but can't for the life of me recall where. It was in the back of the medicine cupboard. Let us know if you've seen, had - or have - one in your home.

Rangihoua Heritage Park is about 2 hours from Whangārei and includes Marsden Cross. It is unofficially the birthplace of the nation after hosting the first Christian service in 1814, which started the first European settlement. Have you been to Rangihoua Heritage Park and taken the walk down to Marsden Cross? What do you think of it?
