In 2013 a team of researchers made the stunning discovery that the New Zealand storm petrel, a tiny seabird once thought to be extinct, was nesting on Little Barrier Island. Graeme Taylor from DoC describes the efforts being made by a dedicated team to determine its conservation status on the island.
Cone Hut restorer Barry Durrant was intrigued to learn of the existence of the Cone Creek Hut in remote backcountry east of Lake Brunner. In April, with Colin Cook and Grant Timlin in tow, he set out to visit it and four days in the Haupiri and Crooked River catchments ensued. Gaining access via the Gloriavale Community, they approached the hut using a recently restored Permolat track and came out via Lake Morgan and the Morgan Tops.
