New Zealand Kekeno, Tawaki & Toi Toi

  1. 1. http://www.authorstream.com/Presentation/sandamichaela-1384560-kekeno-tawaki-toi/
  2. 2. The West Coast (Māori: Te Tai Poutini) is one of the administrative regions of New Zealand,located on the west coast of the South Island, and is one of the more remote and most sparselypopulated areas of the country. The West Coast was home to Māori, who valued it for thetaonga of greenstone (pounamu) which was found there in abundance
  3. 3. To New Zealanders,The Coast generallyrefers to the West Coastof the South Island, andCoasters to those thatlive there. Fiordland isgeographically on thewest coast of NewZealand but has nodirect road connection,and is in the Southlandrather than West Coastadministrative region.The land is very scenic,with wild coastlines,mountains, and a veryhigh proportion of nativebush, much of it nativetemperate rain forest
  4. 4. The region has a very high rainfall due to the prevailing northwesterly wind pattern and the location of the Southern Alps – these two elements give rise to heavy orographic precipitation. The flip side to this is the rain shadow effect which is responsible for the relatively arid climate of the Canterbury Plains on the otherState Highway 6 is a major New Zealand State Highway side of the Southern Alps.
  5. 5. Knight Point Arnott PointA 100 square kilometer area around Arnott Point has an aproximate population of 279 (0.000003persons per square meter) and an average elevation of 693 meters above sea levels.The bold headland of Arnott Point is a major resting area for kekeno (New Zealand fur seal).
  6. 6. Kekeno (New Zealand fur seal) are the most common seals in New Zealand waters.In winter and spring up to 800 kekeno of all ages bask on the rocks and beach. In summer numbersdrop to about 30 on the beach and 199 on the island, mostly young animals and old bulls.
  7. 7. Kekeno are very good swimmers and weaned pups will turn up almost anywhere around NewZealand. A fur seal pup tagged on the west coast of South Island has even been recorded inAustralia. On land they sometimes become disoriented and have been found in unusual placessuch as back-yards, drains and streets.This pointy-nosed seal has long pale whiskers and a body covered with two layers of fur. Theircoat is dark grey-brown on the back, and lighter below; when wet kekeno look almost black. Insome animals the longer upper hairs have white tips which give the animal a silvery appearance.Adult females: maximum length 1.5 m, weight 30-50 kg.Adult males: maximum length 2.5 m, weight 90-150 kg.
  8. 8. Arnott Point is also home for tawaki (fiordland crested pinguin)The Fiordland crested penguin, or tawaki, is one of the rarest of New Zealand’s mainland penguins.Adults stand about 60 centimetres and weigh up to four kilograms. Their upper parts are coloureddark bluish grey with slightly darker feathers on the head.
  9. 9. The sides of the face, chin and throat are dark slate-grey with a broad yellow eyebrow stripe, which splaysout and droops down the neck. Juvenile birds have a thinner eyebrow stripe and a white chin and throat.Most birds have between three and six grey/white cheek stripes. They have an orange bill, which is slightlylarger in adult males.
  10. 10. The monument at Knights Point, NewZealand. The Plaque says: “This plaquewas unveiled by the prime minister thert. hon. Keith Holyoake C.H. on 6th.November 1965 to commemorate theofficial opening of the Paringa–Haastsection of this highway thereby linkingWestland with Otago via Haast Pass.”
  11. 11. The giant tussock grasses of toetoe (Cortaderiatoetoe), sporting numerous large creamy flowerplumes on tall stems, are an iconic part of theNew Zealand landscape.Toi Toi growing on the South Island of NewZealand can grow up to three metres tall withtheir white, feathery plumes gently blowing in thebreeze. Toi Toi, (pronounced Toy Toy), is agraceful native New Zealand grass. There aremore Toi Toi species which have naturallyadapted to New Zealand’s awe inspiring anddiverse sub-regional climates.Toetoe grows everywhere in New Zealand but ismost often seen near the sea coast, or on theedges of swamps, and usually in groups.
  12. 12. Before the carved panels of the Maorihouses were evolved, toetoe stemswere used as wall screens and ceilinglinings. Later the flowering stalks wereused for decorative panels between thecarved figures.The plumes stay fresh for months andtoday are used for indoor winterdecoration.
