The Halfmoon Bay Habitat Restoration Project is SIRCET's main project. It's about creating an open sanctuary in our extended backyard so that native wildlife can thrive. This pest management project extends from the township of Halfmoon Bay to Ackers Point. Volunteers are the backbone of this project, trapping for animal pests, monitoring birds and re-vegetation work.

In the past ten years, SIRCET has trapped thousands of rats, possums and feral cats in the project area. We have also successfully reintroduced the Stewart Island weka, and other native bird species numbers are on the increase.
