Kajakster of service appears to be the New Zealand Amanda Nally. A real zeehondenfan and also happen to be the woman who in november 2017 worried the luipaardzeehonden hotline called when she was at Oreti Beach, in the extreme south of New Zealand's south Island, a thin seal had found. Maybe it was the animal sick? the
A veterinarian of NIWA came on the spot to the animal to examine. That proved to be indeed healthy. Nally suggested to the feces of the animal, which is close to layers, to send for analysis. A good idea, because the feces are quite valuable for researchers. They contain a wealth of information about what the animals eat, how healthy they are and how long they are already in New Zealand waters. And so sent the vet the stool to NIWA. Knew Amanda a lot of that shit her own USB-stick contained, which they previously somewhere in the vicinity was lost.
When Amanda saw the pictures pass on tv, she recognized her video. “ Holy shit , that seems to be very on my images”, she screamed. She feared at first that she might geheugenschijfje simply in the manure had dropped, but the scientists from NIWA think that the story of the nativity.
“At NIWA, they are convinced that a bird in my USB-stick has pass and that the luipaardzeehond then the bird has eaten. There were also a lot of feathers in their faeces,” she explains. “And then I come across strange enough along to say ‘oh, here is a steel that we have to NIWA send’.” At NIWA, they confirm the theory.
