Conservation & Bio Security

ARK concerts support local conservation projects and we will be shouting about The Motutapu Restoration Trust at this gig. Teams of passionate volunteers are ensuring that this jewel in the Hauraki Gulf becomes New Zealand’s largest island sanctuary We think what they have been doing is pretty special, so we are pleased to be supporting them via the Live at the Islands events.

The island is now pest free, so remember to Stop, Check and Go! Before leaving the mainland, please stop and check that your clothes, footwear, bags, boat and camping gear are clean of covert rats/mice, ants, soil and weed seeds and then go have some fun! Easy.
