A night walk on Saturday 13th of April, from 6 to 8 pm. 

Discover night life in the area around Ark in the Park, our largest conservation project, this time in the Bufferzone at Matuku Link: possibly pateke, glow worms and giant moths and maybe even bats! A treasure hunt highlighting the positive results of predator control for our native species.

Ark in the Park in the Waitakere Ranges been doing predator control with volunteers for the past 16 years, enabling the reintroduction of endangered species like kokako, whitehead and robins. The Bufferzone is the area around the Ark with predator control on private properties connecting to the Ark. Matuku Link is part of the Bufferzone, and has been working at predator control since the trust bought this property in November 2016.

The first robin was seen in January 2017 and with neighbouring property Matuku Reserve, another 120 hectares of bush, it is definitely linking the Waitakere river valley to Ark in the Park for all our native species.

This nightwalk is part of EcoWest 2019.
