Pukaha News

Interested in volunteering with the team at Pukaha?

If you are fairly fit and bush savvy, then we would be keen to talk to you about volunteering with our restoration team one day a fortnight.

With 942 hectares of unfenced bush,  we need people to help us set and clear predator traps in the reserve.  So if you are not too squeamish and have a day a fortnight to spare, we'd love to hear from you.

Full training and most equipment is provided.

Contact General Manager, Helen Tickner on 06 375 8756 or email helen@pukaha.org.nz for more details.

Paintings at Pukaha

18 well known artists have created an exhibition of Native Bird paintings which are now on display in the Visitor Centre at Pukaha Mount Bruce until 22 June 2014.

The idea for the exhibition came from local artist, Viv Walker, who has a close affinity to Pukaha Mount Bruce having illustrated two books about the centre, The Eels of Anzac Bridge and Elwyn’s Dream, written by Ali Foster.

More kiwis hatching at Pukaha Mount Bruce

MB76, a North Island Brown Kiwi, hatched to the delight of both visitors and staff at Pukaha Mount Bruce on Tuesday 28 January at 10.30am. Visitors were able to watch the kiwi fight its way out of the egg and then be transferred into a warm brooder box.
