Re-establishing flora and birds, Motuihe Island E whakarauora ana anō i ngā rākau me ngā manu ki Motuihe

Motuihe Island, near Auckland, used to be overrun by pest weeds and rabbits. But the hard work from volunteers at Motuihe Island Restoration Trust means the island is now pest-free.

Tērā te wā, kua pōkia a Motuihe (e pātata ana ki Tāmaki Makaurau) e ngā otaota kino me ngā rāpeti. Heoi, nā ngā whakapaunga kaha o ngā ringa-tūao o te Motuihe Island Restoration Trust, he motu riha-kore tēnei ināianei.

Volunteers have planted over 430,000 native plants. They gather seeds and bring them back to the nursery for planting until they are ready to be properly established.

The new plants mean food for birds and insects, which has resulted in the introduction of tīeke, skinks, bellbird, kiwi, and even tuatara.
