Farewell Wharariki HealthPost Nature Trust

The Trust works in the far north-west of the South Island - on Puponga Farm Park and Farewell Spit.

Activities funded by the Trust are:

  • protecting seabirds from threats and increasing their numbers
  • restore key habitats through planting and protection
  • control priority introduced pest mammals at specific sites
  • enhance habitat for native flora and fauna for which the project area is important
  • explore opportunities for reintroduction of rare/threatened species as restoration proceeds
