In conjunction with this planting programme, all mammalian predators were eradicated and a number of threatened and endangered bird and reptilian species have been successfully introduced including the flightless takahe, one of the world’s rarest species, and the tuatara. Nowhere else in New Zealand can you readily see and walk amongst so many rare species.
The project is managed by the Department of Conservation in partnership with the Supporters of Tiritiri Matangi Incorporated.
