Restoring Takarunga Hauraki is a project aimed at enhancing the biodiversity of our unique ecological area, including Shoal Bay and Ngataringa Bay and the wider Devonport Peninsula on Auckland's North Shore. We aim to eradicate animal and plant pests to create safe and healthy habitats for migratory and resident shorebirds and a place where native land birds can thrive. We are starting by encouraging local residents to start trapping rats in their backyards, in addition to bait-lines managed by volunteers in a number of the parks and reserves in the area.
