The Pauatahanui Wildlife Reserve is an area of approximately 50ha that contains some of the most significant saltmarsh in the lower North Island. Join us as we work alongside volunteers from Forest & Bird to protect and enhance the biodiversity  in this reserve. Many resident and migratir bird species may be seen here including the pied stilt, NZ shovler, paradise shelduck, spoonbill and even the rare fern bird.

Activities may include planting, working in the native plant nursery, weeding and track maintenance. Get in touch today to contribute to this fantastic project!

We can provide free transport from Wellington central or Porirua.
