60 Rena New Zealand Dotterel were kept at Te Maunga Wildlife Hospital during the Rena oil spill. Mauao has a beach on the Matakana Island side which you could spot these birds. They also visit the Mount Main Beach if no humans are about. During January 2014, a pair nested in the middle of the main beach!!
