  • Free Admission

The Hastings/Havelock North Branch of the Kiwi Conservation Club, Hakuturi Toa (KCC) are calling on all kids to help them on the Great Kererū Count at Mohi Bush Scenic Reserve, Maraetotara on Sunday 23 September.

This fun event is part of Conservation Week 2018 and involves counting kererū, or New Zealand native wood pigeon, in the reserve. The kererū is an incredibly important bird and plays a crucial role in seed dispersal. It is the only bird that can swallow large berries like tawa, puriri, miro and karaka, so it plays a key role in regenerating our broadleaf forests.

Registration is required. Please contact Linda at hastingshavelocknorth@kcc.org.nz.
Further information about the day will be provided when booking.

The Great Kererū Count is an annual citizen science project and the Kiwi Conservation Club are hoping people from around the country will count kererū in their garden, local park or nearby park.

This years count will build on previous counts carried out by the Kiwi Conservation Club, the junior naturalist club run by Forest and Bird. The count will help build a detailed picture of kererū distribution across the country, and the information collected will be shared with scientists, local bodies and community groups.

For 30 years, Forest & Bird’s Kiwi Conservation Club, Hakuturi Toa (KCC) has been connecting Kiwi kids to New Zealand’s amazing wildlife and wild places.

KCC now has over 5,000 members throughout Aotearoa New Zealand. For more information on the Kiwi Conservation Club visit the website.
