Walking around the shops at Te Anau, we came across a large turquoise Bird statue!
This statue was of the Takahe which was thought to be extinct for over 40 years until it was rediscovered in a remote valley across Lake Te Anau. Now with the wild population entirely endemic to the Fiordland area, you can see the "real thing" at the Te Anau wildlife park, along with other species such as keas, kaka, bellbirds and tui?s.
