I began working with hihi in 2014, when I started my PhD at the
University of Cambridge and Zoological Society of London (supervised by
Dr Rose Thorogood and Dr John Ewen). I am interested in how young hihi
use social relationships when learning new behaviours, and how this may
be important for conservation, when translocating groups to new sites.
To assist this research, I am using Radio Frequency Identification
(RFID) Passive Integrated Transponder (PIT) tags as a new monitoring
system in the hihi population on Tiritiri Matangi Island.
