See Kiwi chick this Saturday


See Kiwi chick this Saturday


We are delighted to report great progress with our kiwi chicks. They have moved out of the nursery and in to an outdoor enclosure. As well as our Pukaha chicks, we have several from Rimutaka Forest - so our little kindergarten of chicks is swelling!

This weekend, around 2pm, one of the chicks will be available for viewing. If you are out and about, enjoying this fabulous early summer weather, come and take a wander up to the lookout, or complete the Loop Walk, and check out our chick at 2pm.

The kiwi house remains closed, although progress on that too has been wonderful, but there is still plenty to do and see. The eel feed and talk is at 1.30, the kiwi chick at 2pm and kaka feed at 3pm - a great day out.

Garden Tour feedback - thank you

Thank you to all the Garden Tour participants who responded to our questionnaire. All the feedback has been great and we have had some wonderful ideas suggested to us. We will keep you posted on the progress of next year's event.

It features three distinct times of the day;

The awakening; playtime; and the night sounds;

and has the bonus feature of Waiata Manu Huia - a special homage to the long-extinct Huia.

It is a hauntingly beautiful CD which comes in a stylish book full of photos and descriptions of the forest birds featured. It would make a treasured Christmas gift. Or, you can load it on to your computer so it can be playing as you are working or corresponding.

Membership is very cost efficient - for example, an individual membership is just $60.00 per person and $100.00 for a couple. There are also family memberships which are fantastic value.

Membership gives you unlimited access to the reserve for a year. With the new kiwi house opening this summer, a gorgeous caf on site and a fun filled afternoon of activity it is a great value day out. Membership is our primary source of income. Please pass this message on to your friends and family. We always need new members.

DON'T FORGET; join on line before 31st December 2010 to receive the Pukaha - Songs from the forest CD and Book set worth $36.00 FREE.

Visitor numbers going up with the temperature

Not surprisingly, the reserve is getting busier with the warmer temperatures. It is a good indication of economic times when we see four or five buses pull in to the carpark every day. We love sharing our place with our visitors and look forward to sharing it with you soon.

Gordon Campbell: On Yesterday’s Big Parliamentary Air Kiss To China

Evidently, the kind of resolution passed by a conservative government in the UK proved to be far too tough for a centre-left Labour government and a centre-right National opposition to countenance. Yesterday, the two major parties were united in their fear of retribution from China... More>>
