Fernbirds are back in the Wellington region! We're proud to have been part of this project, alongside DOC, to reintroduce these secretive birds back to Pauatahanui Wildlife Reserve near Porirua. Well done to the Forest & Bird branch members who have made this possible through decades of work restoring the estuary. Go well little fernbirds! Caitlin

The mountains of Arthurs Pass are kea country. Presentations at today's Kea Konvention in Arthurs Pass show DOC needs to produce a recovery plan to turn around the decline of kea and the Goverment needs to back it with money. Only 20% of kea country has pest control yet pests are killing kea. Today people spoke about how kea are disappearing. In Kahurangi National Park pest control has helped...

The world’s smartest bird is in trouble. Forest & Bird is worried that predators are raiding nests and killing female kea - if this continues kea could become extinct in the wild. This weekend I'll be attending the 'Kea Konvention' hosted by the Kea Conservation Trust in Arthur’s Pass, and we're looking to DOC to develop a recovery plan for kea. Like most of New Zealand’s almost 1000...

If you're going out fishing this weekend, watch this great video by Milan and Nathan from Big Angry Fish on how to keep seabirds off the hook. Many of the birds you'll see out on the water are still feeding their young on land, and some species are already so threatened that even the death of a single bird really does matter. Find out more here [ Bit.ly Link ]. Melissa

Think nobody owns our water? Think again. In Canterbury, an area which is facing some of the greatest pressures to rivers, lakes and aquifers, landowners are making hundreds of thousands of dollars selling water permits. We say, if water's not being used, the first priority should be helping our struggling waterways and not the private profit of those who got the water for free. Caitlin

Over the last few years Forest & Bird has had to respond to a disturbing new trend of specially protected public conservation areas being exploited for private development. None of our protected places are considered to be out of bounds, and in many cases, we have had to fight attempts to bend-or even break New Zealand's conservation laws. Help us be a voice for nature today - [...
