Constant watch is kept over New Zealand's forests, and in summer extra precautions are taken. A frequent source of danger is inflammable scrub at forest margins, and when a scrub fire is spotted by lookouts all the mobile fire-fighting equipment goes into action to kill the flames before they reach the forest. FOUR FLYING FOSSILS. 132 ft. The Tuataras of New Zealand have no close relatives other than long extinct fossils. This film shows old and young Tuataras, and four being packed and flown to overseas zoos. UNTRIED RAPIDS. 462 ft. Canoe Club members in folding canoes and rubber dinghies pioneer a rapid 20-mile stretch of the Waikato River. After an exciting canoeing trip they enter the thermal areas and visit the sights of Orakei-Korako.
