Cape to City and Poutiri Ao ō Tāne are ground-breaking and collaborative ecological restoration projects in Te Matau a Māui/Hawke’s Bay, along the eastern coast of New Zealand’s North Island. We are working to restore native species across 34,000 hectares of mainly primary productive farmland. Our vision is to bring native species back to Hawke’s Bay to thrive as part of the landscape – and our lives.

10:3

There has been a great amount of interest from a wide range of people wanting to know more about what we are learning from the Cape to City and Poutiri Ao ō Tāne projects. ‘Transforming Biodiversity: Challenging the Boundaries’ Conference will be a three day national conference on 14-16 November 2017. The conference will be held at the Napier Conference Centre in Hawke’s Bay. This is an opportunity to find out details about what we have been learning over the last four years in large scale ecological restoration and landscape scale predator pest management. The conference will look at the big picture of biodiversity restoration in New Zealand and also consider some practical pathways to achieving this goal.

12:5

Cape to City and its sister project Poutiri Ao ō Tāne will be key topics and the conference will include presentations and field trips to both projects. I look forward to welcoming you to Napier this November. Ngā manaakitanga

Transforming Biodiversity Field Trips Cape to City

From Napier, the first stop is the summit of Te Mata Peak, which gives an overview of the project area. The trip then heads out to Te Awanga Downs, the home of the Clifton County Cricket Club in the northern part of the Cape to City footprint. This site is where we are trialling how predator control can be integrated into a farming operation including technical aspects of wireless monitoring, development and use of the podiTRAP. The property also has two small lakes with extensive plantings and integration of the local cricket ground. The final site of the day is Mohi Bush in the southern part of the footprint. There are several monitoring stations installed by Landcare Research which include frass collection, weta houses and artificial covers. Robin and tomtits have been translocated into a neighbouring bush remnant and unbanded individuals have been sighted in Mohi.

Transforming Biodiversity Field Trips Poutiri Ao ō Tāne

From Napier, the first stop will be Boundary Stream Waharoa, located on the eastern flanks of the Maungaharuru Range. This is home to a number of threatened native species including the kaka aviary which highlights the ongoing biodiversity restoration in the area. Nearby Boundary Stream Mainland Island is the site of a large rat control trial using A24’s. The trip will then move on to the Lake Opouahi Pan Pac Kiwi Creche, where we will learn about the history of the lake and the korero of the Wharewaka. Trapping of the surrounding area will be discussed including development of wireless monitoring and the podiTRAP. There may also be an opportunity to see a kiwi as part of the ECOED Save Our Kiwi Hawke’s Bay programme. Both trips depart from and return to Napier War Memorial Conference Centre Departure time: 8:30am Return time: 3:00pm Price: $55 per person (includes transport and packed lunch) What to bring: Suitable clothing and footwear
