Marunui Conservation

Marunui Conservation manages a 423ha property on the southern slopes of the Brynderwyn Hills near Mangawhai. The company was founded for conservation purposes and seeks to protect, enhance and celebrate the natural, historical, visual and recreational values of the land. The entire area is covered by a QE II National Trust open space covenant which includes the requirement to protect the indigenous flora and fauna in perpetuity.

Wakatipu Reforestation Trust

The Wakatipu Reforestation Trust was established in 2013 to grow and plant native species in the Wakatipu basin.  By 2014 the Trust had set up its nursery in Jardine Park, Kelvin Heights, Queenstown.  The Trust works with DOC, the Council, schools, business and other community groups to identify, plant and maintain areas of native plants.  

The Vision:  Protect and restore the native biodiversity of the Wakatipu Basin through revegetation projects, collaboration, education and advocacy.

Ark in the Park

Ark in the Park is a volunteer based collaborative project between Forest and Bird and Auckland Council.
We are an unfenced sanctuary currently covering 2100ha. Our main activities are predator control via a grid of bait stations and traps and reintroduction of native species no longer found in the Ranges. So far these include North Island Robin, Whitehead and Kokako.

Polhill Protectors

In 70ha of scruffy regenerating gullies bordered by the suburbs of Brooklyn, Highbury and Aro Valley, something extraordinary is happening.

For the first time in a century rare birds like kākā and tīeke/saddleback are living together with people in Wellington. The return of Aotearoa’s avian originals into this sweet slice of the Town Belt is courtesy of spillover from the Zealandia Ecosanctuary (ka pai).
