Kiwi in New Zealand now number around 70,000 and are split over five different species but numbers are dropping overall at a rate of about 5.8% per year.

always wanted to go there. I remember that article in Surfers Path? about how the bank was going to be destroyed by them building a mariner/yacht club. Good to hear it didn't destroy it.

A marina has been built inside the harbour, no effect so far but those that oppose reckon damage to sand flow etc could happen. Too early to tell but she still breaking... Albeit not much with our lack of decent swell last two months!
