Native Bird Monitoring
Each year key native bird species are monitored using a targeted Five Minute Bird Count methodology. Results show that native birds are increasing and excitingly, that kaka and korimako/bellbird are naturally returning to the area thanks to the sustained pest control.
The removal of 45,044 roaming animal pests over the past six years has improved forest health and helped to restore birdsong to the once near-silent forests across the Kiwi Link area.
