Our focus is on protecting Oi along the Karioi coastlines. Over the last few months we have been doing just that – together with a few NZ experts (Helen & Jo)  and a couple of Jo’s wonderful furry friends – Maddi and Rua – species dogs specially trained to seek out seabird nesting sites. Were delighted to report that 7 potential breeding sites were found – and we are keeping a close eye on these.

However – Oi sites were not the only thing we found! A pair of Little Blue Penguin were also discovered in a burrow.  And we know with ongoing work we will see more of these friendly little creatures on our shorelines. We hope this gives you added inspiration to continue the hard job of predator control. Its not always exciting – but it sure is worth all the effort!
