Wellington Natural Heritage Trust

We manage a 107 hectare area of regenerating forest called Long Gully Bush Reserve in the halo around Zealandia. It is the largest area of protected private land in Wellington City. We undertake pest and weed control and also ensure the effects of this are monitored.
We also support other groups efforts to protect and restore natural ecosystem in the Wellington Region. For example we were instrumental in enabling the purchase of the Baring Head block, which now forms part of the East Harbour Regional Park.

Kapiti Coast Biodiversity Project

The three year project ended in April 2018. It was supported by a Ministry for the Environment grant to assist volunteers to improve biodiversity on the Kapiti Coast. Four main areas on the southern Kapiti Coast were covered in the work - Queen Elizabeth Park, the Paekakariki-Pukerua Bay escarpment, the Whareroa Farm Reserve and part of Perkins farm/Middle Run. It was run through the Friends of Queen Elizabeth Park.
 
There were six streams of work. 
 
• Birds, including Korora (Little penguins)
• Lizards
• Weta
