To tell a silver fern from a black fern, look at the underside of the leaves – the silver fern is silver; the black fern is green! You can also look at the trunk where the fronds come out – on the black fern this is much darker and fuzzier. Did you know? ” It comes from the ferns – when a fern frond begins its growth, it comes out of the trunk as a koru – and as it unfolds, the side fronds and leaves unfold from within. Koru is a big word – with a very important and spiritual meaning. All that the new life will ever be is wrapped up inside of the koru, just waiting to grow.
Fourteen species of albatross (there are 24 world-wide) live in New Zealand waters. The only mainland breeding colony for the royal albatross is on the Otago Peninsula (see that chapter, page 516, for details). These are incredible birds to watch fly, take off and land – their wing span can reach three meters (nearly 10 feet). The West Coast is home to the world’s only breeding ground of the Westland black petrel which come to land near Punakaiki only during breeding season. Some of the big birds of the forest that you may see include the kaka (two species, one on the North Island and one on the South), a sturdy, hooked-beak fellow that is bronze and red.
Only the Queen or the Governor-General (acting on the advice of Parliament) can remove a Court of Appeal or High Court judge from office. We have Specialist and District Courts, The High Court and the Court of Appeal. The highest court is The Judicial Committee of the Privy Council (The Privy Council) which is in London and is made up mainly of British judges. This is in some ways similar to the Supreme Court – civil cases may (upon appeal) be heard by the Privy Council. The Queen has the final word, but usually acts on Privy Council Advice.
