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 lost his mate Puffin so is now living the life of a widower.
T2 has been 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 are making sure he is well looked after in his new home and he now has a new mate to enjoy his retirement with.
Update: These images were taken on August 26th 2017, sadly T2 died on 27 April 2018.
