Owhiwa Road, above Parua Bay on the slopes of Mt Tiger
about 15Km east of Whangarei
New Zealand
Our 2004 objective was to "have all of the bush on Mt Tiger in a healthy state". To that end we have removed over 8000 possums, 700 goats, hundreds of rats and some stoats, ferrets and feral cats.
We are a low key group of individual land owners and our properties have significant bush areas which include a wide variety of fungi, unique Northland snails and many species of visiting and resident native birds.

Goat control has been a team effort with DOC, Northland Regional Council, Landcare and Hancock Forestry.
