Come help out in Zealandia, the world’s first fully-fenced urban ecosanctuary. The long term goal of Zealandia is to restore a Wellington valley’s forest and freshwater ecosystems as closely as possible to their pre-human state. The 225 hectare ecosanctuary is a groundbreaking conservation project that has reintroduced 18 species of native wildlife back into the area. Check out: https://www.visitzealandia.com/About

On this day we will be walking through Zealandia to the predator proof fence-line, and using a variety of hand tools, clear away any vegetation which is growing too close to the fence. This is important work as it maintains the integrity of the perimeter fence and ensures that predators are kept out of the sanctuary.  

Upon conclusion of the day, there will be an opportunity to go for a walk through some of the tracks inside the sanctuary and have a go at spotting some of the rare and amazing creatures which live inside.  If you'd like to join us and help protect this precious resource in the heart of Wellington City, then please get in contact with us using the details below to find out more information.
