Bream Head/ Te Whara is an icon of scenery and ecological restoration without a fence. It is a testimony to the ecological transformation that can be achieved from a wide community of supporters providing a winning combination of funds, knowledge, skill and effort. With sustained and intensive pest control the ecosystem is flourishing. New species have been found, birds are being reintroduced and species that were only occasional visitors from the Hen and Chicken Islands are now breeding within the reserve. Bream Head is a message to New Zealanders that a return to a historical pre-European state of pristine forest on the mainland is within the reach of possibility.
Who are our volunteers?
In May, a refresher training session took place for the Bream Head/ Te Whara volunteers working on our toxic bait lines.
