It is uplifting to hear about this Māori Trust gifting a last remnant of native bush in the Wairarapa to the public of New Zealand. The Makirikiri Aggregated Trust will partner with the Crown as kaitiaki or guardians of the land and they have issued a Nga Whenua Rahui reserve status for the land. The group are also planning 1500m of riparian fencing on waterways that pass through the Trust property. As the Wairarapa Times Age explains this is also great news because, “the trust also was happy to extend Pukaha Mt Bruce walkways into the forest block”. Two kiwi have already been released into the block by the Pukaha Mt Bruce wildlife reserve and other birds will also find a home there, including hopefully the Kokako, last seen there in the 1940’s. Thank you Makirikiri Aggregated Trust we appreciate your gift very much.
