Native species like kiwi and kōkako are not the only ones who call Hawke's Bay home. For Predator Free Hawke’s Bay to flourish, it will take the understanding and effort of all our community to carry the vision into the future. We're dedicated to talking with people like you in Hawke’s Bay, Aotearoa, and abroad to help people learn about our work and encourage them to support our vision of returning native species to Hawke’s Bay.

Where can you find us sharing our story?

Taradale Intermediate Freshwater Monitoring

Inspiring our tamariki and rangatahi, our young people is the goal of our dedicated education team. As the future decision-makers of New Zealand we want to see them passionately protecting our environmental taonga.

We've worked closely with schools throughout the region to help spread our vision. Through these partnerships, many Hawke's Bay students have already had the opportunity to see a wild kiwi in its natural habitat or let wētā crawl up their arms! They have also been inspired to take on their own environmental goals.

We provide professional development for teachers and partner with the Eastern Institute of Technology to support skills and confidence building for trainee teachers to use the environment as a context for learning throughout the curriculum to inspire their own schools and students.
