The Hibiscus Coast Branch area covers Whangaparaoa, Puhoi, Redvale and Waitoki.
If you would like to find out more about our work in the Hibiscus Coast area why not join us at our next branch meeting which will be on Thursday 18th April, 7.30pm at St Andrews Presbytarian Hall, 105 Centreway, Orewa. All are welcome.
For budding young kiwi conservationists our KCC group meet for organised activities and adventures.
Our main bush restoration projects as part of the North West Wildlink are the Raroa and Matakatia Reserves.
The Stanmore Catchment area will be a long term project, as we work with developers and Rodney District Council to maintain clean water, open streams and appropriate fish habitat and passages.
A working bee is held at Raroa on the first Saturday of each month or by arrangement. Help is always required with weed busting, releasing of plants, mulching and monitoring of bird and reptile activity. Working bees at our other projects such as Matakatia, Stanmore Catchment, Shakespear Regional Park and Motuora are listed in our Calendar of Events.
Become A Volunteer
We welcome the involvement of people of all ages and backgrounds.
You can help us in many ways, for example: attending our regular working bees, bird and reptile surveys, promoting our branch at market days, building trapping boxes and their distribution and monitoring. You may even be able to offer a particular area of expertise or become even more involved and join our active committee.
Many hands and small steps will all end up with a favourable result for our environment.
Fantails In Our Gardens
Birds such as fantails, which visit our gardens, are threatened by rats, cats and other predators. Around 80% of all fantail eggs and chicks are destroyed by predators. With the support of the wider community we can make a difference by trapping predators such as rats, feral cats, stoats and possums. Rat trapping is our top priority. With regular bird surveys we can measure the difference we are making to our community.
The predator proof fence under construction at Skakespear Regional Park will provide a main land safe haven as part of the North West Wild Link as birds transition from Tiritiri Matangi to the Hibiscus Coast. We give it our full support.
