Pest Free Onetahua, A vision for a thriving wildlife habitat
Pest Free Onetahua has a bold ambition to bring an abundance of birds and other native wild-life back to North West Golden Bay. It’s a long-term shared community vision to enable future generations the chance to enjoy a wealth of native wildlife in this wāhi tapu - a sacred place, rich in Māori traditions and ancestral stories.
Comprising almost 12,000ha in the South Island’s northernmost peninsula, the project area stretches from Farewell Spit south to the Whanganui Inlet, taking in the Kaihoka Scenic Reserve and Pakawau Forest and some private land bordering these areas.
