New Zealand- Auckland, February 5th
Connecting People to Parks
Every Tuesday Conservation Volunteers are out and about at different parks around Auckland.
It’s part of an initiative between Conservation Volunteers New Zealand and the Auckland Council to help bring biodiversity back to our central parks and to give people who are interested in conservation an opportunity to get involved.
This week we are at Oakley Creek, an important wildlife corridor which reaches all the way from the Manukau harbour to the Waitemata. Even though it’s located in the middle of Auckland, it’s a lovely stroll through native bush along paths and wooden bridges. You’re walking through history; the Maori used the creek to reach inland from the inlet and there are many landing sites and signs of settlement along the banks. It is also the site of Auckland City's only natural waterfall!
Conservation Volunteers experienced team leaders guide the programme and aim to teach volunteers about all aspects of conservation, including plant identification and planting techniques.
Join us and help out your local parks.
Phone 0800 56 76 86 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to book.

Predator Control Training - Auckland Council and Conservation Volunteers New Zealand
Bring Back the Birds to our Auckland Parks!
Be an environmental champion - help us on this exciting project to save Auckland‘s native wildlife!
Animal pests (rodents and possums) compete with native birds for food and raid their nests for chicks and eggs. They also feed on a wide range of native plants, lizards and invertebrates. Your parks need your help to prevent this destruction
If you are interested in taking part, come along to one of our two training sessions on Saturday 30th June 2018
When training is completed you’ll be assigned to one of the parks in which this programme operates where you’ll bait and reset traps and record the catches you make. You can choose when you walk your own track, so you can do it at a time that suits you. Ideally you will live or work locally to the pest control area. Once you’ve finished your line check, you enter your results into a web based database called Catch IT.
What to Wear: Sturdy boots or shoes, Long pants, long-sleeved shirt.
Bookings are essential. If you would like to register please call 0800 56 76 86 or email email@example.com
Tamaki, Feb 17th and 2 other dates
Conservation Volunteers in partnership with Tamaki Estuary Environmental Forum, Foundation North and Auckland Council are running a series of sea and land based community clean up events to assist with improving the health of the Tamaki Estuary.
Litter, particularly plastic, has a major impact on wildlife with birds and fish becoming entangled or mistaking the litter for food, eating the plastic and feeding it to their young. As the plastic breaks into small fragments in the water it leaches potentially toxic chemicals into our rivers and seas, threatening our ocean wildlife and us.
By coming out to one of our clean up days you will be making a difference to the amount of rubbish that enters this toxic cycle and creating awareness about steps that we can take to prevent further degradation by recycling and encouraging others to do so too.
Come and help on one or more of these projects and be a part of transforming your local river. We'd love to have your help.
Bookings are essential. Phone 0800 56 76 86 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Owhiro Bay, February 20th
The Owhiro Bay stream is the only unpiped stream flowing to the south coast in Wellington City. It provides important habitat for aquatic animals and the surrounding bush acts as a valuable connecting corridor between places such as Karori Wildlife Sanctuary and the town belt. Join us for a day of freshwater conservation and help to protect this precious resource!
Brookby, February 26th
The Brookby Wildlife habitat project on the Auld farm has a mass revegetation project underway and to date the site has been planted out by many schools and various community groups.
The aim of the project is to regenerate native bush in the valleys and steep hillsides linking together some remnant bush lands.
The habitat restoration work will increase biodiversity values of the region as well as providing a good food source for the abundant birdlife found in the region such as tuis and wood pigeons and will protect the headwaters of the Papakura and Wairoa Streams.
Across the farm of 400 acres over 70 acres are under bush land.
This week the team will do a variety of tasks including cutting and pasting weed trees and planting.
Bookings are essential. Please call 0800 56 76 86 or email info @cvnz.org.nz for more information.
