The Otunahe Scenic Reserve (approx. 70 hectares) is a private QE11-convenanted reserve that is within the much larger predator-controlled area of 13,000 hectares cared for by the East Taranaki Environment Trust (ETET).
The reserve at Purangi is a wonderful example of mature native forest and the area has become recognised as a national stronghold for Western North Island Brown kiwi with an estimated 4000 kiwi in residence.
The area has a rich biodiversity and is also home to other native species including fernbird, bellbird, tui, kereru, New Zealand Robin, New Zealand falcon, and whitehead.
Cost: A donation of $10 per person, under 5 years old Free.
All donations help us to continue our work to provide a predator controlled environment.
