Our Mission

The Windy Hill Sanctuary and Aotea Community Native Plant Nursery have spent 22 years ecologically restoring the south eastern area of Great Barrier Island.

How We Create Change:

Protecting threatened species - kaka, kereru, pateke, black petrel, grey faced petrel and range of lizards including the rare chevron skink.

Reducing Animal Pests - A comprehensive monitoring programme indicates we are achieving our objectives of reducing plant and animal pests to low densities.

Restoring native biodiversity - This is the largest area of protected land on the island and a key example of the benefits of pest management to the native biodiversity.

‍Our Impact

Over 300 hectares covenanted with QE II Trust within the 800 hectare Windy Hill Sanctuary.

North Island robins returned to the island after an absence of 140 years.
