Every Friday afternoon on RNZ National, DOC's Threatened Species Ambassador Nicola Toki introduces us to an uncharismatic but lovable member of New Zealand's wildlife community in the segment Critter of the Week.
We got some incredible entries – check them out!
The prize is domestic flights for two people to Wellington for a guided tour and lunch at Zealandia.
The winner will be announced next Friday (26 October) during Jesse Mulligan 1-4.
You can buy limited edition Critter of the Week T-shirts and tea towels here.
