Ngā Kōrero Whakapū – Our Story
When you tug on a single thread in nature….you’ll find it attached to the rest of the world” – John Muir
When you look across the horizon, there’s an invisible web of threads from New Zealand to the rest of the world…. they’re the flightpaths of seabirds travelling thousands of kilometres from nesting to feeding grounds.
Just 200 years ago, seabirds filled our coastal forests and every year thousands of seabirds flocked to our coastline to raise their chicks. It’s no coincidence we are known as the Seabird Capital of the World.
Until recently the last remnant species of seabird on Karioi, the Grey Faced petrel / Ōi was struggling to breed – now due to the hard work of our team we have chicks once again successfully fledging!
