After five years, “Kiwi-sotan” Jordana Whyte is returning from the South Island of New Zealand to visit her family and update us on protecting the birds and animals of New Zealand, home to some of the world’s most unique and endangered wildlife. She will be reporting on the Dunedin Wildlife Hospital — now the busiest facility of its kind in the country — and her summer in the New Zealand sub-Antarctic islands with the hoiho/takaraka (the rare Yellow-Eyed Penguin), and the whakahao (New Zealand Sea Lion).

This meeting will be held in person Thursday, Oct. 26 at 7 p.m. at the Minnesota River Valley Wildlife Refuge Visitor Center, 3815 American Boulevard East in Bloomington, and will be simulcast via Zoom. The refuge visitor center is a short walk from the METRO blue line. While this will be an exclusive program at MRVAC, all meetings are free and open to the public.

The meeting will be simulcast on Zoom beginning at 7:30 p.m. To join the Zoom meeting click on this link:
