Follow The Birds
Of all the birds that migrate, kuaka, the bar-tailed godwit, is the world champion. It holds the record for the longest non-stop migration of any animal on the planet. Scientists have recently tracked a kuaka flying for 11 days without a break, covering 12,000km and hitting speeds of more than 80km/h.
So when our ancestors first set sail across the Pacific it's no wonder they looked to the sky for inspiration.
