Puhoi Far North Reserve Extended

October 5, 2015

We’re very pleased to announce that our Puhoi Far North Reserve has been extended by a further 38 hectares, taking the reserve to 293 hectares.

Just off the Honeymoon Valley Road near Peria, the new block adjoins the reserve on the south western side and is a mixture of manuka dominant regenerating shrubland, mature cut over broadleaf forest, pine and pasture. The forested gully has a series of attractive waterfalls and pools.The purchase secures the protection of the upper catchment of the main reserve stream and provides better access for pest control. A wider community led pest control programme will begin soon on the new block and adjoining properties, extending the Trust’s existing kiwi protection trapping area. Recent kiwi call counts in the area show kiwi numbers falling in the Valley so hopefully the additional effort and resources can reverse this trend!Please visit our Puhoi Far North web page for further information about the reserve.
