Verse of The Day
“E matau ana hoki tatou na wai tenei kupu, Maku te rapu utu; maku te hoatu utu, e ai ta te Ariki: me tenei ano, E whakawa te Ariki mo tana iwi. He mea mataku te taka ki roto ki nga ringaringa o te Atua ora.” (Hebrews 10:30-31)

...there had been more sightings and near misses in the Ngunguru area...

Darkstar - the North Island brown kiwi hit by a car near Ngunguru and left with multiple fractures in her foot - is fixed up and raring to be released back into the wild tomorrow.

The kiwi - named Darkstar by children at Ngunguru School - was injured when she was accidentally run over by Amanda and Roger Jones on May 14.

The bird was released at Tutukaka about six months earlier, as part of Operation Nest Egg with support from the Tutukaka Landcare Coalition. At first, the couple thought the kiwi was a possum. After being hit, she ran away and Mr Jones had to chase her to take her to the Whangarei Native Bird Recovery Centre.
