Is that a teahouse on Stewart Island?

Mei Leng Wong Reporter from NZ Gardener & Get Growing

Why yes it is, and it's also a man cave, a shed, and a builder/engineer's retirement project. Little wonder Allan Jones' quirky build is a runner-up in the 2021 Resene Shed of the Year competition run by NZ Gardener.

Poll: Should Wellington Zoo replace its Lions?

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Wellington Zoo’s elderly lioness sisters, Djane and Zahra, have been euthanised, leaving the zoo with no lions.
Both lionesses had been closely monitored by veterinary staff over the past 18 months due to age-related health concerns, and Djane’s health recently deteriorated.

Wellington Zoo’s elderly lioness sisters, Djane and Zahra, have been euthanised, leaving the zoo with no lions.
Both lionesses had been closely monitored by veterinary staff over the past 18 months due to age-related health concerns, and Djane’s health recently deteriorated.
Lions have been part of Wellington Zoo community since it opened in 1906, when the Zoo was gifted a male lion called King Dick.
Wellington Zoo said it would look at starting a new pride of lions in the future, but it was likely to be awhile until a firm plan was in place.

This week we feature a picture of a starling by Louise Thomas.

"The variety of plumage at the moment on young birds as they transition into their adult feathers is amazing. I think a few years ago I would have thought of starlings (Sturnus vulgaris) as a dozen different species if I thought of them at all. Many of the new generation still have their brown heads, but are developing their star-spangled chest feathers. Mature feathers coming in on their backs are beautiful, with pale brown borders and the middles an iridescent green in the sunlight. Nature is an artist."

Meet Marilyn, from Wellington SPCA, who needs a new home.

"I am currently in a foster home with my sisters, and this is what my foster mum has to say "Marilyn likes being picked up and cuddled and is always keen to sit on my knee. Would make a great pair with Miriam." I would do best in a quiet and stable home, with people around to offer me support. I will need time and patience. I would not settle with a busy home or one with young children. If this sounds like your family, please get in touch and we will put you in touch with our foster mum."
