Rangitoto: Te Toka tu moana

Have you ever gazed at Rangitoto and wondered... How it got its shape? Was it a very explosive beginning? And will it erupt again? Rangitoto: Te Toka tu moana, The rock standing in the ocean tells the dramatic story of Auckland's most dramatic icon - its birth, the kaka bird's connection to Rangitoto, the imprint of humans on its fragile wildlife, and how the island's guardians are saving it today.
