The Miramar Peninsula was once an island teaming with life. Dense groves of shurbs and trees such as miro, totara, rimu and flowering rata were alive with the sound and movement of native birds; kereru, tui, kakariki, and now-extinct huia and the giant moa. During the time of early Polynesian settlement it acquired the name Te Motu Kairangi, meaning “Precious Island”.
Now, the Te Motu Kairangi restoration group is working to restore ecological health to Miramar Peninsula. Activities include weeding coastal restoration sites in preparation for the planting season.
