Over a 3-week period, our merry band of Mount Saint Mary College students and faculty will travel throughout the two main islands of New Zealand. We're geared-up to learn about the flora and fauna as well as the conservation measures taken to preserve native New Zealand organisms, and absorb as much of the culture as we can!

Happy New Year!
Dr. Moran and I welcomed in the new year standing with thousands of people in the streets of Auckland. At the stroke of midnight, fireworks shot from the Sky Tower and the folks lining the street cheered and shot-off fireworks. Happy New Year!
