In June 2014, Project Island Song released 43 Toutouwai (North Island Robin) onto pest free Moturua Island in the Bay of Islands. Seven months later, the first unbanded offspring were discovered. “Sam” was one of these, setting up camp in Otupoho Bay (Homestead Bay).
Since the Toutouwai, 80 Tieke (North Island Saddleback) have been released on Urupukapuka and Moturua Islands and 40 Pōpokotea (Whitehead) on Motuarohia.
This is such a wonderful project; the Guardians of the Bay of Islands, Ngati Kuta and Patukeha and DoC all working together for the environment, and what a difference they’re making. So many local people are involved with pest control, weeding, propagating, planting, bird relocations. Imagine what our stunning Islands of Ipiriri will be like when these guys have completed their 20-year plan; our very own Tiritiri Matangi right here in the Bay, what a taonga.
