History of Pupu Rangi Nature Sanctuary


Consisting of a privately owned area consisting of 100 hectares of protected NZ native forest, Pupu Rangi is home to many of the native species of trees and birds that require active protection from introduced predators. The native forest is classified as having national significance and no logging is allowed within the sanctuary. Local council and private funds are used for the following projects:

  • fencing of the forest to prevent the entrance of the grazing cattle
  • building and marking of walking tracks
  • possum, stoat, ferret, and feral cat trapping
