NZ Batman

My role as a bat spokesperson is to tell New Zealand and the world about our wonderful bats. My passion has taken me to many different schools, community groups and conferences to share my knowledge on how special these bats are and what we can do to save them from extinction.

The Terrace Gardens Restoration Project

Initiated by a group of conservation minded interns in collaboration with the Wellington City Council, Growing Places Charitable Trust and The Flagstaff hill Residents Association, this project aims to restore the Terrace Gardens area by replacing the invasive weeds with native species of plant. As a result we hope to convert the space from a rundown garden into a pleasant and appealing recreational space for Wellingtonians to enjoy and be proud of and to allow native birdlife to flourish in the area.

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). 

Ngaio School NestEgg

To restore the school arboretum area to a rich forest environment featuring native tree giants open for natural play and learning for Ngaio children for generations to come. To create an area in the gully that has a high quality habitat for native species, a specialised learning zone for children and an inspiration for our community.

Project Twin Streams Henderson Creek

Project Twin Streams is a large-scale environmental restoration project. it is working to improve water quality in Waitakere streams by revegetating 56 kms of streambanks with native trees and shrubs, and purchasing properties within the flood plain for removal. This stabilises the banks from erosion, creates a cool, shaded environment for ecology to thrive and filters toxins entering the streams.

Through its unique approach, Project Twin Streams engages local residents in the project through partnering with local community organisations to deliver the planting program.
