Who lives here?

Quammen and Paku are retired from the breeding programme, but that hasn't stopped them building a nest and laying eggs. Unfortunately since the eggs were not fertile they haven't produced chicks.

Quammen came to Orokonui from Maud Island where he and his mate had produced 18 eggs, but none of them hatched.

Paku came from Kapiti Island where over many years trying she had only produced one chick. That chick was Kawa, who now lives at the Te Anau Wildlife Centre.
