What do you think of the Hundertwasser Art Centre's rooftop park?

Denise Piper Reporter from Whangārei Leader

The southern hemisphere's largest afforested roof is starting to take shape in Northland. The first of 150 trees were lifted onto Whangārei’s Hundertwasser Art Centre on Tuesday, helping to create a rooftop park with 4000 plants. The building is the last architectural project that the famous Austrian artist Friederich Hundertwasser​ was involved with before his death in 2000. What do you think of the rooftop park?

NZTA seems broken

Peter Neighbourly Lead from Kamo

I've tried to renew my car's rego online yesterday evening. Could load the nzta website, but the page to renew registration would not load.
I dropped them a line about this ..."we are currently experiencing high volumes of email, we may get back to you in 9 days" ... yeah, right, that will be useful.
This morning their whole website appears to be down. So if you need to register your car, you may have to go to the testing station, assuming *they* can get in.

Check out our latest Kiwi match, Chris Humfrey and Kama
A Message from the Pukenui Rangers ..

"Chris Humfrey (Kiwi) had done the work for us and removed his transmitter of his own accord which left us thinking that was the end of it. It turned out however that he was huddled up in a nearby burrow with Kama, neither being too impressed about being disturbed! They were pulled out, weighed, and put back in the burrow to continue doing their thing, an early sign of breeding activity I reckon!"

Thanks especially to Carl Dowd from Pataua North Landcare who has been helping out immensely in the forest in tracking kiwi and health checks. Shout out to Pukenui hard working rangers Ben Lovell and Bevan Cramp and Kiwi Namesake the real Chris Humfrey (human)
