Places for Penguins is a Wellington Forest & Bird project based on Wellingtons South Coast. Our aims are to provide safe nesting sites for little blue penguins to protect them from car strike and predators. Places for Penguins currently builds and places nest boxes on the seaward side of the road, monitors nests and monitors traps and bait stations. We are also working to restore Tarakena Bay through planting and weed control with assistance from Greater Wellington Regional Councils Take Care programme.
