Herald Island

Bringing Back the Birds – a ‘Predator and Weed Free Herald Island’

Since 2006, Auckland environmental groups have been working towards improving the North-West Wildlink, a green corridor for native birds and wildlife between the Hauraki Gulf and the Waitakere Ranges.

The Upper Harbour Local Board has generously funded the Herald Island Environmental Group to carry out a Predator and Weed Free Herald Island project that aims to ‘Bring Back the Birds’ to our section of the North-West Wildlink. The funds will be used to help private residents address three issues that affect native bird populations: (a) rat control (b) invasive weed control and (c) local native plant numbers.
