Saving kiwi in Taranaki is our project name. We have a large in-situ project covering 13,000 hectares, where predator control is undertaken. We are a successful community driven group which has 500 pair of kiwi under predator protection. The area is home to many other threatened native species. The Trust is working to return kokako to the area. We have a group of contractors who check the 1300 stoat traps on a monthly basis. Our field team are locals and well trained in their areas.
A place / catchment based community led initiative that embraces kaitiakitanga practices, responsibilities and behaviours , embracing not just environmental restoration, but also the communication, community, leadership, social, economic and cultural and learning restoration required to grow a rich future.
The Taranaki Conservationists is a community group which enables Taranaki locals to support
conservation activities through a social and fun approach. We collaborate with local community
groups to promote their cause help organise events, and attract volunteers through our growing
email list and social media presence.
Conservation partnerships are the way of the future, and the Taranaki Conservationists have been
working as a key partner and supporting many Taranaki conservation groups over the last 3 years.
Our focus is to restore the forest habitat of Khandallah Park to a point where we see native birds, once lost to the area, thriving again.
