We are a new community group formed with the vision of restoring our native birds to the Eastern Bays of Auckland. By removing pests and creating bird friendly habitat, we aim to create an urban sanctuary alive with bellbirds, kaka, and kakariki.
Our group are currently undertaking the removal of weed species, eradication of rats, mice and possums, monitoring of fish in our waterways, native planting in areas with no native vegetation and are working with Auckland Council bio security in releasing and monitoring bio control methods for selected weed control.
The Waitaki Branch of Forest and Bird has a number of active programmes including growing native plants, planting native plants at Fenwick Park and Cape Wanbrow, organising beach clean ups, organising field trips to local sites of interest and inviting guest speakers along to talk about the environment and conservation. We have around 80 members.
We are a community gardens in Oamaru-- a social and educational hub for sharing life skills across age, culture and gender. Our aim is to empower all members of our community with skills to grow and cook their own food.
This group is for those in the vicinity of Willowbank Scenic Reserve, Tawa, Wellington, who want to help to look after the ecology and heritage of the area, which is 5.5 ha in size.
New Zealand is crazy beautiful. There aren't many places in the world where you can view a beach and a volcano while on the motorway to work! I don't ever want to take New Zealand for granted, and I definitely don't want the generations below me to miss out on being able to go 10 minutes down the road and finding a magical bush wonderland or a glistening, SAFE, beach.
Our aim is to bring back the birds by supplying rat and mouse traps to households and to support trapping in reserves.
