Creature Feature

The Wildlife Hospital, Dunedin treats sick and injured native New Zealand species right here in the heart of Aotearoa’s wildlife capital. Their expert veterinary team patches up more than 500 patients every year, returning the majority of them back to the wild where they belong.
 
On Creature Feature, we shine a spotlight on one of the Wildlife Hospital, Dunedin’s extra special guests.
 
You can learn more about the Hospital, including ways to support this charitable trust, at wildlifehospitaldunedin.org.nz, or follow their Facebook page for more fabulous creature content.

Episode One

Our first guest is a kakī/black stilt. They are one of the fussiest patients and definitely the meep-iest.

Puaka Matariki Iriraki Taiopeka

July 13th – July 20th 2020 @ 5pm

In Ōtepoti Dunedin we usually celebrate the Māori New Year through a diverse citywide programme of community events – the Dunedin Puaka Matariki Festival.

But this is not a normal year…

This year, our community will come together virtually, online and on-air, from Monday July 13th to Monday July 20th.

Tune into Puaka Matariki Iriraki Taiopeka for a magic hour of chill stories from a host of local stars.

Migrant Motherhood

Tuesdays @ 10:30am

We want to talk about motherhood- the sticky, icky, challenging and sometimes very rewarding experience of raising children in the 21st century.

Migrant Motherhood looks at what it means to be a mum, moving with our children through the stages of life, across the city, Aotearoa and perhaps the world. Kiwis and immigrant mothers like myself have a range of diverse experiences worth sharing and share some big universal challenges and joys.

Let’s give the invisible load a voice.
