The Central Auckland branch encompasses exactly the same boundaries as the old Auckland City Council pre Supercity.
Local projects involve promoting restoration, revegetation, weed and pest control and increasing backyard biodiversity.
Two groups are involved with mostly clearing and weeding to promote the growth of appropriate seedlings which are coming through. Separately, a group is involved with trapping: we have two trap lines that are operated at different times of the year and inspected twice a week. Over time we have seen the catch numbers of possums and rats decline with mice holding steady. Again separately, I carry out poison baiting on a single line in pulses throughout the year.
Eastern Songbird Project
Eastern Bays Songbird Project aims to restore and regenerate the natural ecosystems of the Eastern Bays to create a sanctuary alive with birds, enhancing the lives of our residents and visitors. To achieve this, we will mobilise the community to take action both on their properties and in local open spaces to provide environments in which populations of birds and invertebrates can flourish. We will work with local people and organisations already trapping pests and encourage and coordinate the local community to trap throughout the residential areas. This project will contribute significantly, and be integral, to Pest Free Auckland 2050 and Predator Free NZ 2050.
Kiwi Conservation Club
The Auckland branch has a very active kids club that organises trips & activities for young eco-warriors wanting to learn about the wildlife that calls NZ home.
We have regular KCC activities and trips you can join us on.
