Our community planting day will take place on Sunday the 11th of June from 9am to 12 noon. Bring your whanau and friends, and join others in our community. Help plant 2,500 plants to increase habitat for our local biodiversity.
The timing of the start of our new ranger David Lawrence-Solomon could not have been more fortuitous. His first day on the hill was just after ex-tropical Cyclone Gabrielle had departed and gosh do we need him! David and his wife moved to Northland from Nelson two years ago and after completing a pest control course at Northtec, he began as a volunteer which has led to his new full time position. We warmly welcome David as part of our committed team.

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.
