Habitat Restoration

The Hawke’s Bay region is ideally placed to be a leader in the restoration of native biodiversity within the broader human landscape. The rich range of indigenous ecosystems that once dominated the landscape have been greatly reduced and fragmented. However nationally significant ecosystem and species populations remain.

The Hawke’s Bay Regional Council has the expertise to be a key leader in this work but we need landowners, community and volunteers to be involved.

Private landowners surrounding Boundary Stream Mainland Island have been instrumental in providing sections of land to retire, fence and encourage habitat restoration.  Wetlands, streams and small pockets of native bush are ideal as this land which is unable to be farmed, can be used to increase conservation through enhancing and encouraging our native wildlife back to the area and providing a protected location for translocated bird species to travel between.
