Crested Moa, Pachyornis australis

Moa Talk with Dr. Mike Dickison

Join Dr. Mike Dickison, Curator of Natural History, Whanganui Regional Museum for a talk about the moa, including their extinction and possible resurrection.

North Otago is possibly one of the most important places in New Zealand for Moa. We will be exploring the story of the Moa over the next months as we work on themes and stories for the Cultural Facilities Development Project.
