The 'Herald Island Environmental Group' is a subcommittee of the Herald Island Residents and Ratepayers Association Incorporated.
We aim to motivate all Herald Islanders to restore, enhance and protect the island's unique natural environment; so that its local native plants, birds and wildlife flourish and the community enjoys a place of well-being.
We post events on our website and our members can sign up, chat about the event and post photos afterwards.
The theme of the group is sociable volunteering. As well as volunteering, events usually also include having some food, drink and plenty of time for mingling with each other and members of the groups that we are meeting up with.
North Shore branch is one of 49 branches of Forest & Bird in NZ. Apart from branch meetings and advocacy, our main project is the Tuff Crater Restoration Project.
Moehau Environment Group is a volunteer organization which has achieved 11 years of coordinated intensive predator control, with habitat restoration projects covering over 13,000 hectares, primarily on private land.
This has allowed for the recovery of many endangered species in the Northern Coromandel including dramatic turnarounds for kiwi, fern birds, Bittern, Kaka and Spotless crake. Our hard work has allowed for the successful reintroduction of the North Island Robin and Pateke (Brown Teal), with both species now successfully breeding in the area.
