Animal Research

Our staff and students study species as diverse as flightless beetles, weta, sharks, frogs, tuatara, penguins, takahe, muttonbirds, whales, lizards, seals and dolphins - many of which are native species of conservation concern.

Other studies involve the ecology of pests, such as wasps, ferrets and possums, and species with potential aquacultural value, including eels and salmon.
