Fancy a gannet pie? 🥧

In 1789 a hungry Captain James Cook documented his kiwi take on the classic Christmas 'goose pie' reporting that "our goose pye was eat with great approbation" by the crew. Well before the invention of Gannet pie, young takapū were an important part of Māori diet. Nowadays, like most of our native birds gannets enjoy full protection. Whilst gannet pie is certainly off the menu, visiting these cutie pies isn't - with only a few more days of tours available be sure to get your ticket ASAP!

Ever wondered how a #gannet nest is made?

 In late winter and early spring, the Takapū/ Australasian gannets are often sighted flying around with seaweed - a key component in their nest structure. By use of a build up of guano, nutrient packed excrement, the gannets form a concrete like cylindrical wall that is softened with seaweed. These nests are incredibly resilient and can last for years!

Only the males return with seaweed, a helpful tip for distinguishing sexes.

Be sure to book your end of season #gannetsafarisoverland tour before April 30th! 

If seeing #NewZealands largest, accessible mainland colony of takapū/ Australasian gannets has been on your bucket list, the coming weeks are your last chance for an up-close experience with these incredible birds.
