THE TARA ITI AS A CONTROL DRIVER

The RPM Tara iti has a smooth aerodynamic top and a steeper concave under rim. What this means is this disc will soon become one of your favourite control drivers. The smooth top provides good distance and glide and the concave under rim prevents the disc from flipping at high speed. Don't think that because it is a control driver and not a high speed driver that you will lose distance, the testing has shown that the Tara iti can keep up with other speed 12 and 13 discs and gets there with a far more stable flight. As the disc gets worn in it will make an ideal anhyser disc for holding a left to right line and not burning over (RHBH thrower). Once you throw one it will make your bag ??

THE TARA ITI ? THE ENDANGERED NZ FAIRY TERN

With a population of fewer than 40 individuals that includes approximately 9 breeding pairs, the New Zealand fairy tern (Maori name ?Tara Iti?) is probably our most endangered indigenous breeding bird. It is ranked as an endangered species, and carries a ?Category A? priority for conservation action. A Department of Conservation Recovery Plan is currently in action. ? Department of Conservation

Fairy terns are confined to Australia, New Zealand and New Caledonia, with endemic subspecies in each country. Fairy terns breed successfully at four sites only in New Zealand: Waipu sandspit, Mangawhai sandspit, Pakiri River mouth (one pair since 2003), and Papakanui sandspit on the southern headland of the Kaipara Harbour. Since 2012, birds have occasionally nested at the Te Arai Stream mouth, just south of Mangawhai. They nest on exposed sand spits, clear of vegetation and large debris, and where shell accumulates above spring high water
