Hawke's Bay Newspaper today reported that Rex Gilroy is to mount an expedition next month to find the moa and the ranges behind Wairoa.
Mr Gilroy claims to have proof of up to 12 little Bush moa inhabiting a valley in the area. After some investigation I have found out that the Emu in the area and perhaps these have been mistaken for moa.
With all the work carried out in the area, this is a department of conservation training area as well as used for logging and by other environmental groups, if anything have shown up it would have definitely been reported long ago.
It will be interesting to see the results of Mr Gilroy's expedition.
