Iwi Kiwi Waitangi • Iwi kiwi aims to coordinate conservation efforts within our area of action while enhancing our social-economic environment. • The area covered of about 5000 ha already has conservation management in place in some areas (DOC, Waitangi Trust, Northland Forestry Managers) • The high cultural, historical and ecological value of the Bay of Islands provides us with the opportunity to showcase how well we can integrate tourism with protecting all native taonga who live here. Sir Bledisloe’s vision for his gift was sustainability. This is already achieved with forestry, tourism and recreational activities. Once we have reached a satisfying level of pest control, and our efforts are rewarded by an increase in the number of native wildlife monitored, we aim to help develop a Kiwi Crèche, in partnership with Iwi, Waitangi Trust and DOC. • Iwi Kiwi is Tangata Whenua led, embracing the strong connection of hapu to this land. • Like the woven strains of a kete, we collaborate with neighbouring groups to make us stronger in the battle against invasive pests. We are part of the Kiwi Coast and Mid North Alliance, connecting with other groups to create safe wildlife corridors and share best practices. Request membership

Kaipupu Point Sounds Wildlife Sanctuary Kaipupu Point Sounds Wildlife Sanctuary has been created over the last 10 years to protect and enhance our special New Zealand wildlife. Hundreds of volunteers have pulled together since 2005 to restore this headland of coastal bush and establish access. Firstly, in 2008, a specially constructed fence was built to keep out all of introduced animal pests. This fence creates the 40 hectare ‘mainland island’ of Kaipupu Point Sounds Wildlife Sanctuary. A 2.8 km track was constructed encircling the Sanctuary. A jetty and pontoon and landing area (the only access to the Sanctuary) have been built in Shakespeare Bay. The Sanctuary is always open, and is a short boat ride from Picton. Any water vessels can drop visitors off at the jetty. There is no entrance fee to go into the Sanctuary. If you don't have access to a boat, the water transport operators on the foreshore of Picton can help get you there. Request membership

Ohiwai Forest Farm Landcare Ohiwai Forest Farm comprises 56Ha much of which is regenerating native forest with stands of 100 to 300 year old Kauri and also numerous large Rata, Miro, Tanekaha, Rimu etc. The property is located in Hikuai, Coromandel. The owners are working to make the site predator free currently removing pigs, trapping possums, wild cats, stoats/weasels and rats. Tracks will be put in over the next few years to enable better access to the steeper areas of the property for pest management. In October 2017 OFF had a funding grant of $5k approved from Waikato Regional Council for Good Nature A12 and A24 possum, rat and stoat traps to pest control an 8Ha valley on the south west flank of the hill. Installation of the network will begin in February 2018. As of 16 October 1017 917 possums, 480 rats, 12 stoats, 14 weasels and 5 wild cats have been removed from the property. Request membership
Oi Kaitiaki Jac Spyksma and Peter Hunt are trapping with kind permission from and support of several property owners. We started in 2015 and expanded our operation in 2016. We are aiming to eliminate stoats which are a threat to Kiwi released at the nearby Marunui Conservation block. Wider predator control measures including targeting of rats and possums will help protect other native flora and fauna including a very rare native frog found in the Brynderwyns. It has also been reported that Grey Faced Petrels (Oi) are nesting at Bream Tail. These nests are vulnerable to predators. Northern Regional Council have supported us by providing traps, baits and advice. Request membership

Omataroa Kiwi Project Omataroa occupies an area of 7,777 hectares, consisting of approximately 7100 ha of exotic production forest and a further 640 hectares of indigenous forest. The plantation forest and bush remnants which surround the mature forest of Puhikoko Reserve contain significant kiwi habitat, and kiwi sign is regularly seen. The long-term aim is to extend kiwi protection over the entire Omataroa area. Currently Rayonier Forestry fund buffer trapping around Puhikoko Reserve, and there are plans to extend this network. Kiwi call count monitoring is also planned over a wide area to help direct the future expansion of the project. The land is administered by the Omataroa-Rangitaiki No 2 Trust, and there are over 6000 shareholders in the land. The main focus of the project is the bio-diversity rich Puhikoko Reserve (546 ha), which is home to kiwi, kereru and North Island Robin. A kawanata is in place over Puhikoko Reserve, and intensive predator trapping and poisoning is undertaken to control mustelids, rats, cats and possums. Regular kiwi aversion training is also held with the local Omataroa hunting club and kaitiaki work is undertaken with forestry contractors to prevent harm to kiwi during forestry operations. The objective of the project is to protect the kiwi population and the wider bio-diversity values of the forest, while also helping people reconnect to the whenua and develop their skills as kaitiaki. Ian Tarei leads the work on the ground, and has a strong interest in engaging whänau in kiwi conservation from a young age. Local köhanga reo are regular attendees at kiwi releases, and a group of Te Teko youth have been trained to undertake predator control and kiwi work. Wild juvenile kiwi have recently been found in the area, highlighting the benefits to the kiwi population from the animal pest control and advocacy work. Operation Nest Egg (ONE) has been successfully utilised to return chicks to the reserve once they have reached a safe weight. This has helped reinvigorate the resident kiwi population with young birds. Kiwi chicks have also been gifted to other local kiwi projects to help ensure a robust gene pool in the now isolated populations. Request membership

Windy Hill Sanctuary A 770HA ecological restoration project situated on south eastern Great Barrier island. Integrated plant and animal pest management began in 1999. The Trust employs a field team of 5 to systematically manage 5000 rat stations, 60+ cat traps, hunt pigs, maintain 80+ km of tracks and remove invasive weeds. Management of ship rat and kiore is undertaken using balance of trapping and bait. Over 50,000 rats have been trapped and an unknown number poisoned. A comprehensive monitoring programme began in 2000 - birds, lizards, invertebrates, weta, seedlings, rats and freshwater streams are monitored to an annual programme. The landscape is a mozaic of broadleaf podicarp mature forest, mature kanaka forest, regenerating manuka and coastal forest. Much of this is undisturbed from ridgetop to coast with the bulk of the Sanctuary uninhabited. Threatened species present include: kereru, kaka, black petrel, grey faced petrel, striped and chevron skinks, pacific and forest geckos, and pateke. Request membership
