Description

Maria Gill. Illustrated by Gavin Mouldey

Based on the true story of Toroa, the 500th chick to hatch at a breeding colony on Taiaroa Head in Dunedin, this evocative story follows the bird’s life cycle as it grows from chick to adult. Just before Toroa fledged, the ranger attached a transmitter to its back to track the bird’s flight path. This book is a lovely narrative of Toroa’s story and of the problems he might have encountered in the Pacific Ocean. Will fishing lines snag him? Can he avoid an erupting volcano? Does a plastic island pose a threat and will he make it back to Dunedin eight years later to start his own family? Toroa’s Journey is a remarkable story for budding environmentalists to read together or alone.
