Did you know that fairy terns are New Zealand's rarest birds?

Denise Piper Reporter from Nor-west News

The Department of Conservation has drawn its battle lines to help protect the country’s rarest bird – the critically endangered New Zealand fairy tern.
Also known as tara iti, there are fewer than 40 adult birds in the species, so the department is doing all it can to ensure breeding is successful. South Head's Papakanui Spit is one of four sites manned seven days a week.

Lorna Thornber Reporter from Stuff Travel

Hi everyone,
We'd be keen to hear about your favourite foodie finds on your travels through NZ. Have you come across a particularly amazing cafe, bakery restaurant or food truck? Had an especially delicious pie, burger, sandwich, smoothie bowl or cronut? Been to what must be one of the country's best fish and chip joints? Or been pleasantly surprised by a town's food scene? Please share the details below and include 'NFP' (not for publication) in your comment if you don't want it included in an article. Cheers.
