tour is for anyone with a reasonable level of fitness, who wishes to help
Yellow-eyed penguins. During this tour each person is given the opportunity to
plant natives and/or weed around existing plantings at the YEPT reserve. Join
the tour and help to create habitat for future generations of Hoiho so you can do
something positive for our endangered Yellow-eye penguin. Not only will get to
see an area not normally accessible to the general public but you will leave 

the Catlins, knowing it is a better place because of your visit. The tour will last
