The Brook Waimarama Sanctuary

The Brook Waimarama Sanctuary is a community-based initiative working to create a pest-free wildlife sanctuary close to the Nelson city centre.  Integral to creating the Brook Waimarama Sanctuary is construction of a pest-proof fence 14km long, to enclose the area, and eradicate all the pest mammals within it.  This will enable the re-creation of an historic piece of New Zealand which is only found on a few offshore islands.  Resident birds, reptiles and invertebrates will flourish and species previously lost from the area will be re-introduced.
