      • The bubbles are just about gone and the squid tank is all clear! You can now get a really good, clear view of this amazing specimen. Last night we had to close off the squid exhibition for a few hours, during our normal Thursday evening opening hours. The team took out about 600 litres of fluid from the tank, lowering the level of the liquid. They then carefully added the liquid back into the tank

    • Museum science dissections - a new trend?
      • 8 Jan 2009
      • Te Papa's blog
      • It seems like New Zealand museums are setting a new trend for staging scientific dissections of big interesting animals and getting the public involved in them online. It’s a great way to engage visitors with the scientific activities of natural history museums - it takes the behind-the-scenes stuff out into the public arena. And it can be a real boost to public knowledge and understanding a

      • Talk about family values, Wellington has been voted the best place in New Zealand to raise a family.  This is  according to the ASB top-spot report, which acts as an indicator as to which parts of the country excel in which areas. And you can see why such a decision has been made.  Wellington lies smack in the middle of the country, between the sometimes overly conservative Christch

Over the weekend the government passed laws reinforcing (rather than strengthening) societal repulsion of violence towards children. Last week it reduced the rights of employees of small business

      • Eastern Hutt and Harbour City continue to make the running in women’s Premier hockey, both remaining unbeaten after hard-fought wins on Saturday. Harbour overcame a stubborn Hutt 3-0 with the Valley side defending strongly. Bridget Kiddle’s clever field goal opened the scoring after half an hour and she scored again before the break from a penalty corner. Harbour had the better of the second half but could only add a goal to Kelsey Smith. Maddie Simmonds and Kiddle played well for Harbour while Hutt’s Michael O’Connor continues to impress.
