Takahē Dung: What can it tell us about the Fungal Realm?
11am, October 28th at the Orokonui visitor’s centre.
Takahē like those that roam the grasslands of Orokonui produce around 8m of poo a day! With all this poo there must be something we can learn about it. Join MSc candidate Josie McGovern as they discuss their research on fungi found within this bountiful dung, and what it means for our forests.
The talk is free to attend but please book to let us know how many to expect.
Josie will be joining one of our guiding team for a short guided walk in the sanctuary after the talk. There is a cost of $30 f0r adults and $11 for children for the walk and this includes entry to the sanctuary.
