Kingdom of the Birds: An Expedition to Solander Island

The remote Snares Islands, 105km south-south-west of Stewart Island, are teeming with rare wildlife – including tomtits, albatross, and penguins. They seldom have human visitors.

In late 2013, four Te Papa scientists spent two weeks on the Snares, carrying out a range of seabird and plant research projects.
