The South Island's only wildlife hospital

If you're interested in New Zealand's unique and endangered wildlife, you might enjoy this recent article about Dr. Lisa Argilla, the only trained wildlife veterinary doctor working in the South Island (based at Dunedin's Wildlife Hospital):

I'm glad you enjoyed it, Melnq8. I thought you might.

Being a fond of Marlborough Sounds and Queen Charlotte Track, you'll be happy to read today's report that DOC is eliminating invasive wasps there. Maybe they're not such a problem in shoulder season?

I'm all for wiping out wasps, although I don't remember any issues with them in the sounds. Yet another perk to off season visits?
