Each year DoC works with community groups across Aotearoa to spread the conservation message. It’s a nationwide celebration of kiwis pitching in to help our native plants and animals.
This year the Bream Head Conservation Trust are holding two events during Conservation Week and we invite you to be part of them.
Enjoy a free sausage sizzle – we hope to see you there!
We will share how our community led predator and pest eradication has resulted in a resurgence of native birds and wildlife in one of Northland’s most important coastal forest reserves. You *should hear some of our resident kiwi calling and maybe even spot one on the track.
Please contact Jenny Lawrence – email@example.com or phone 021 164 9992
*Kiwi are abundant in this area, and are heard frequently however, we cannot completely predict their behavior.
Special thanks to Bream Head Getaway for providing the venue for our event!

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.
