    Researchers are a step closer to ending debate on whether moa were native to Stewart Island

    Researchers are a step closer to ending debate on whether moa were native to Stewart Island


    The New Zealand Journal of Ecology has outlined analysis of a 700-year-old moa skeleton discovered on West Ruggedy Beach.

    Study co-author Doctor Nic Rawlence says it's significant, because very few have been found in the area.

    He says the findings could mean that when Polynesians arrived - moa were living on the island.
