Úlva Island Explorer & Paterson Inlet Cruises
Situated in Paterson Inlet (Whaka a Te Wera), the island reserve provides the chance to observe rare indigenous wildlife such as worka, weka, k?k?, p?pipi, wiki, t??, bellebirds (korimako), doves (kereru), kermakawaka (piwakawaka), miromiro (tomtit) and browncreeper (). Saddlebacks (Tieke), Gelhead (Mohua), Stewart Island Rob (Toutouwai) and Rudleman (Titipounamu) were all successfully re-introduced on Ulva Island.
A few happy guests of the Shrine have also seen the Stewart Island tokoeka (brown kiwi) during the outing. This island, which has no stable people, is backed by the Ulva Island Charitable Trust, a group of Stewart Islanders who collect resources for research, maintenance of the routes and infrastructures and help with the release of birds.
Ulva Island offers a predator-free habitat for wild animals and animals since the extinction of mammals. Rogue dogs ensure that the predator's condition is preserved and pitfalls are set throughout the island to minimize the risk of further evasive manoeuvres. It is an up-and-coming place for anyone interested in local flora and fauna.

The Stewart Island Shgs are large navy shgs with varying feathers that can only be found in the south of New Zealand. Speckled morf has a conspicuous b/w feathering, while the bronzes appear deep bay, but are glowing under the right light-circumstances. At Otago Harbour and Foveaux Strait, Stewart Island Shags can be seen in the'line astern' rakes on their way to and from the feeding ground.
Stewart Island Shags' habits of searching for groups in muddy waters are endangered by set-net entanglements. Stewart Island is a large pink-footed shaped boat from the south of New Zealand. It has a colourful macaw with a deep brown colored face and a whitish stomach and neck, with whitish spots on the otherwise blackened leaves.
Back springs are shiny blackened bluish and the back is blackened. It has a completely brownish-black bronzed morf with a shimmer of greenness on its leaves and a shimmer of citrus. Zuchtfieder have both types orange-colored caruncle over the beak-base and violet face-skin (see also c. à caruncle on king-hook).
Nonbreeding poultry are similar, but have a blunter complexion and no combs. The juvenile is also dimorph ( "spotted" or bronze), but blunter with paler face and no caruncle. There' s a wide gap in magnitude from southwest to northeast, with Stewart Island bird small, and Otago bird large.
Related species: In the south of New Zealand, the rat morph can be mistaken for the similarly large rat cormorant, and the bronzemorph for the cormorant. The spotted and the chestnut shogs have dark legs and are flying with an S-shaped throat. Rat scales have more whiteness on the face and no blank spots on the upper wings.
Rats and blacksheds tend to sit in a tree, while Stewart Island sheds do not. There are hardly any known ways to isolate rat bird from either Chatham Island Schag or inland. The problem was extra-limit sighting of pink-footed spotted shogs in Godley Head, Banks Peninsula, and Kaikoura.
Was it Stewart Island or New Zealand Kingshags? The Stewart Island shags are found from Stewart Island and runaways in the southwest, Te Wae Wae Bay in the southwest and the Waitaki River in the northeast. We have two new spotting of bronce morpheas at Lake Ellesmere. The number of nest sites in Otago has grown in recent years.
There is no indication whether this is a general rise in the number or a move from the south. The Stewart Island Shgs are seabirds of the coast and ports. You will sleep on spits of land, small islets and artificial constructions. Estimations differ between 1600-1800 couples and less than 5000 species.
The Stewart Island Shgs are endangered by fisheries interaction, in particular by involvement in sets of netting, but sometimes also by (illegal) shots by fishermen. All of Otago's large and prosperous nesting populations are either island or sanctuary. The Stewart Island shags are nests in small and large settlements, on rocks or outcrops.
Rearing habits and the environment of Stewart Island are not well known. The Stewart Island Shgs can sleep in large herds on spits or artificial structure (e.g. on the quay of Oamaru). They' re feeding up to 10 km off the Otago coastline. Shepherd Island shgs food in groups, in the waters up to 30 m. They are able to search successfully in turbid waters as in the inner harbour of Otago.
Food consists mainly of bottom sea bottom species (Otago Harbour 70% by weight) such as flounders and tyrants.
