Now that whiteheads have been successfully re-introduced to Shakespear the next step is to bring back the North Island robin (toutouwai). These are very sociable little fellows, often to be seen foraging just a few meters away. They are also known to sing loud and long so we expect they will be a popular attraction.

But to do this we need to raise most of the expected cost of about #18,000. We have a kick-start of $2500 from Foundation North and we’ve been applying to other donors but so far without much success.
To make this happen we really need your support, so please donate what you can.
