Bream Head recipient of DoC funding

September 11, 2023

Years of mahi by a passionate community has demonstrated that threatened ecosystems can be restored and threatened species can be protected. But we can’t rest or even ease back without hard won gains being lost in an instant which is why it’s encouraging and important to receive this additional support from DOC.

The funding will support increased control of invading predators such as stoats by enabling us to push out and strengthen our trapping lines. We will also have increased resources available to fuel the war on weeds like moth plant and climbing asparagus - two persistent climbing weeds that present a danger to our forest canopy as well as the airborn seeds threatening the pristine offshore islands nearby.

The Bream Head Scenic Reserve is home to seven nationally threatened species as well as threatened ecosystems. How many would you recognize?
