Public Places Endangered Research

Employing a full time resident ranger; re-establishing native flora; eradicating mammalian predators from the island and surrounding area to provide a safe habitat for re-introduced native fauna including kiwi, banded rail, New Zealand dotterel, skinks and geckos; providing a place for environmental education from primary to tertiary students and the general public.

community input has transformed Matakohe-Limestone Island from degraded pasture into a regenerating forest habitat – 155,000 trees planted and counting.

Mammalian predators have been eradicated from the island, meaning this ‘new’ forest is now a safe home for a growing variety of threatened native fauna that have been re-introduced, including kiwi, banded rail, New Zealand dotterel, moko skink and forest gecko.
