The Puketi Forest Trust and its volunteers must be congradulated on the work being done since the inception of  the Trust (2003).

The Track clearing and placing of traps throught out the forest has been a monumental task. Predator numbers are well done and is on going. The success is seen in the rise in the number of bird life.  Awesome.

During the winter months the New Zealand Robin (Petroica Australis) were captured from the central North Island (Rangitoto), Thirty birds were released and are being monitored, which are already pairing up for the up coming spring.
