Visit White-Flippered Penguins at Taylors Mistake – West and Stanmore
Friday 8th December
Dr Chris Challies is an expert on the white-flippered penguin and has done many years of research on a colony at Harris Bay, next to Taylors Mistake.
He has offered to show us “his” penguins at his colony. This is an amazing opportunity to see the penguins up close. There will be plenty of chicks around of varying ages as well.
It’s a 30 – 40 minute walk along the Taylors Mistake to Godley Head walkway. Then the path departs from the track heading downwards steeply and involves walking down a “stairway” (i.e. a ladder) to get to the rocky shoreline at sea level.
