This auction is for a superior plus cabin for 2 on a phenomenal 10 day expedition to New Zealand’s remotest Islands – Antipodes, Bounties and The Chathams.

The amazing Heritage Expeditions trip aboard the Spirit of Enderby, the same boat as the Our Far South voyage went on to Antarctica. This is a ‘one off’ expedition that offers you the rare opportunity to travel with scientist and ecologist Rowley Taylor and NZ historian Rhys Richards, plus prominent southern biologists and naturalists on board Heritage Expeditions vessel Spirit of Enderby. It is unlikely that such a talented and knowledgeable team of lecturers will ever be assembled again, making this a truly unique opportunity not only to see the islands but to learn from the experts.

Other highlights will include the opportunity to see the rare Erect-crested Penguin (which breeds only on the Antipodes and Bounty Islands), the two endemic parakeets that are only found on the Antipodes and the world’s rarest wader, the Shore Plover that breeds only in the Chatham Islands. There are opportunities to observe many seabirds including the endemic Antipodean Wandering Albatross, the Chatham Island Albatross, the Pacific Albatross and numerous petrels, possibly including the very rare Magenta and Chatham Island Petrel.

Departs Bluff 9th March and arrives Lyttleton 19th of March. Includes superior plus cabin for 2 and transfers from the Kelvin Hotel Invercargill as well as to Christchurch airport - priced at NZ$8385.

Kind thanks to Heritage Expeditions for kindly donating this item.

All money from this auction will go to the Million Dollar Mouse fund – raising $1 million to eradicate mice off the Antipodes Islands and provide a safe habitat for the many animals and seabirds that rely on these islands. Mice, the last remaining pests, eat the eggs and chicks of the seabirds that breed on these islands. www.milliondollarmouse.org.
