GOING WILD - GUIDING NATIVE RESTORATION IN TASMAN DISTRICT by Maggie Atkinson & Michael North
GO WILD is a new style of native forest restoration manual, combining the “how to” with the stories of people who have done it, inspire it and live it. It will guide you through the restoration process, from choosing a site and plants, to establishing 'pioneers', feeding native birds, protecting your regenerating bush from stock and predators, 'making weeds work for you', establishing wildlife corridors, restoring dunes and wetlands, trapping pests. Available at your local book shop, or from Tasman District Council.
We've all heard of Tiritiri Matangi and we all know about the Karori wildlife sanctuary. Since they were established, over 100 more wildlife sanctuaries have sprung up, all round New Zealand, where control of predators has meant that endangered native birds can breed safely.
Many now have such abundant birdlife that the stock is harvested every year for release in other sanctuaries to build up their populations. The some 135 sanctuaries include those at Maungatautari near Te Awamutu, Ark in the Park in the Waitakeres, Little Barrier, Tawharanui near Leigh, Purakanui near Dunedin, in Nelson and on the Barrier.
Available from your local book shop.
