SUPPORT FROM LOCAL MAUNGAKIEKIE RESIDENTS NEEDED
Maungakiekie Songbird seeks to create a buffer zone or 'halo' area around the parks of Cornwall Park and One Tree Hill Domain. For this we need the support of residents, businesses and organisations to join up and not only install predator traps on their properties but also enhance the habitat they are providing.
In creating this buffer zone around the Parks, predators will have to run a gauntlet of traps to reach the park. The greater the number of traps deployed means the greater the catches and less predators making it into the Parks. For those predators that do make it, the Parks have a pest management programme in place so their stay will be short lived !!
Our initial halo area involves properties within a defined boundary (see map and street details below), which we hope to grow in the years ahead linking up with other community groups.
If you're interested to join and start trapping, and/or plant native trees, and/or setup a bird feeder, then register on the 'contact us' page and we will be in touch about how you can receive your resources.

Ok this is not a free resource that we give out, but something that you can win. And we're trying to make winning easy - as a member if you make a referral to a neighbour, or someone else within the halo area, and they sign-up (and note you as a referring member) then you both go into the monthly draw to each win a bird bath (as shown).
Handmade in Auckland by Sanstone NZ, this sleek modern design bird bath is available in colour options of cream or dark grey. Each birdbath has a unique ceramic insert in its base.
