We won a prize! Thanks to NRC for recognising us and all our volunteers for their hard work in earning it.
We are very proud to announce Bream Head Conservation Trust have won the Environmental Action in Pest Management category at Northland Regional Council’s 2020 Whakamānawa ā Taiao – Environmental Awards. This was celebrated at a virtual ceremony organised by NRC who commented that it was wonderful to recognise and celebrate kaitiakitanga in action with so many of our Te Taitokerau community.
Much of our work is done by volunteers and it is wonderful to have that mahi recognised. We look forward to meeting face to face with NRC and the other prize winners in late July.

On Sunday the 11th of September, in the good company of many of our volunteers, friends and the Whangarei Mayor, we celebrated our 20th anniversary. It was the perfect moment to reflect upon what has been achieved over the years.
Bream Head/Te Whara Conservation Trust has appointed Tom Flynn-Plummer as our new head ranger. Tom will start in August and he is replacing Adam Willetts, our head ranger for the last eight years.
In May, a refresher training session took place for the Bream Head/ Te Whara volunteers working on our toxic bait lines.
While all attention is focussed on combating an epidemic, a group of grey-faced petrels (Pterodroma gouldi or Oi) had another successful breeding season at the Bream Head Scenic Reserve.
It’s been a tough twelve months all round the world but it hasn’t been all doom and gloom for the Trust.
Thanks to an anonymous donor, any donation you make to the Trust in the month of June will be tripled.
