Project Kāka – An update from the Department of Conservation – James Griffiths
Wed 28 Jun @ 7:30 pm
Project Kāka is an intensive 10 year pest control and monitoring programme from DOC and other organisations and volunteers working to target species that are the biggest threat to native bird life and forest systems. The project began in 2009 and covers a 29,801 ha area from Otaki Forks to Holdsworth campground in the Tararua Forest Park.
The project is named for the iconic native parrot the kākā, plentiful on nearby Kapiti Island and at Pukaha Mount Bruce, and representative of the many species that are expected to become more abundant as a result of this programme.
Learn more about the programme on the DOC website or come along to hear James Griffiths, Lead DOC scientist on the project, talk about the latest progress.
