Authentic beauty on Motuihe wildlife sanctuary island
The island has a rich heritage and an important role in Aotearoa New Zealand’s journey of rediscovering more of its authentic self; and you’re welcome to be part of it. Motuihe has opportunity for visitors to give back to the land, sowing into something meaningful for generations to come, with their conversation project. The ecological restoration happening here allows people to experience rare and endangered NZ native species. Check out DoC for a map of the island.
Ronnie Harrison, the concessionaire of Motuihe Island wildlife sanctuary, sparked the idea of the islands restoration. Together, with a community of incredible volunteers, Motuihe Trust and the Department of Conversation, her vision has become reality. Ronnie’s dream and mahi / hard work has given countless people wonderful experiences and many more flora, fauna and wildlife an ecological sanctuary to call home. Some of these species are, the iconic Little Spotted Kiwi, as well as Saddleback, Kakariki, Bellbirds, Whiteheads, Shore skinks, Common gecko, Duvaucel gecko and Tuatara.
