Project Island Song
Project Island Song's vision is the ecological restoration of the pest-free islands of Ipipiri in the Eastern Bay of Islands to create an archipelago of wildlife sanctuaries, lush with native subtropical vegetation and alive with birdsong.
Project Island Song is a partnership between community conservation group the Guardians of the Bay of Islands, local Rawhiti hapu (Ngati Kuta and Patukeha) and the Department of Conservation. Together we protect, sustain and help restore the natural birdlife of the Ipipiri archipelago, note by note, to enable our special place and people to thrive now and for future generations
Thanks to this incredible partnership the islands of Ipipiri are beginning to sing once again after many years of silence.
New Zealand’s native wildlife is under threat. Humans created that threat. It is up to us to help redress the balance and support natural regeneration.
