The Gulls of Sulphur Bay

The gulls.

by Sue Gibbison 


Sulphur Bay, at the southern end of Lake Rotorua, is a wildlife reserve. Its hot springs make the area popular with many water birds, but the sulphur in the springs also causes some problems for them. This article describes how the gulls live in this unique environment. There are two other items in this Junior Journal linked to Lake Rotorua. They are “The Gulls of Mokoia Island” and a retelling of the legend of Hinemoa and Tūtānekai.
