T2 is a Takahē who, like Prince Phillip, is retiring from public duty. He is 23 years old and not as robust as he used to be. He recently lost his mate Puffin so is now living the life of a widower.
T2 is being moved to a quiet area of Zealandia on August 28th 2017 where he will live out the rest of his life in peace and quiet. The team at Zealandia will ensure he is well looked after in his new home.
