Wharariki Eco Sanctuary

Farewell Wharariki Eco Sanctuary

We are proud to contribute to the establishment of the Farewell Wharariki Eco Sanctuary.

The eco-sanctuary on Cape Farewell is the initiative of Golden Bay’s Peter Butler who established the HealthPost Nature Trust in conjunction with the Department of Conservation and Manawhenua ki Mohua.

The sanctuary features a predator-proof fence to protect a bird nesting site where rare and endangered species such as pāteke (brown teal), diving petrels and fluttering shearwaters are being reintroduced. It is a part of Puponga Farm Park.
