ZEALANDIA is a world-first, fully-fenced urban eco-sanctuary located in the heart of Wellington, New Zealand. With a 500-year vision to restore a Wellington valley’s forest and freshwater ecosystems as closely as possible to their pre-human state, the 225 hectare eco-sanctuary is a groundbreaking conservation project that has reintroduced 18 species of native wildlife back into the area, six of which were previously absent from mainland New Zealand for over 100 years. Today we signed an MOU with ZEALANDIA to foster collaboration and to support cross-promotion. We have already learnt much from our cross-tasman colleagues, including how to develop opportunities for volunteers to engage in ‘fence patrols’ at Mulligans Flat. New direct flights to Wellington will enable the partnership to grow. Read the MEDIA RELEASE – Sister Sanctuaries Partnership with Zealandia. Visit ZEALANDIA when you go to Wellington.
