Almost all of our sea life, animals, birds and insects are unlikely to
cause any harm. The only danger on land could be from a rarely seen insect
called the 'Katipo' spider which has a poisonous bite and medical attention
would be needed as soon as possible.
Bees and Wasps are found in New Zealand and their stings could cause
a reaction if you are allergic to them. Mosquitoes and sand flies can
be annoying in some parts of the country (mainly summer) but a good insect
repellent will prevent them from causing too much discomfort.
