Long Gully Bush Reserve - between Zealandia (Karori Wildlife Sanctuary) and Makara Peak Mountain Bike Park.
Off Ashton Fitchett Drive, Brookyln and South Karori Road, Karori in Wellington City.
New Zealand

We manage a 107 hectare area of regenerating forest called Long Gully Bush Reserve in the halo around Zealandia. It is the largest area of protected private land in Wellington City. We undertake pest and weed control and also ensure the effects of this are monitored.
We also support other groups efforts to protect and restore natural ecosystem in the Wellington Region. For example we were instrumental in enabling the purchase of the Baring Head block, which now forms part of the East Harbour Regional Park.
