Pirongia Te Aroaro o Kahu Restoration Society

This month we highlight the amazing work the restoration society undertakes with Kōkako translocation. We also have information on  Maungatautari Ecological Island Trust and the Waipā District Council Heritage Fund. There are brochures, images and crafty activities, a great way for whānau to complete together.

Did you know, Kōkako survive today in managed isolation. It is endemic to Aotearoa New Zealand, meaning it can only be found here. It is not a threatened bird, however, all North Island populations can only be sustained in managed situations as all unmanaged populations are extinct.

Here are some images from the exhibition from the Pirongia Restoration Society Inc. about the work they do from Kōkako relocation to pest control.
