Wildlife

Rurururu

The growth of nectar- and fruit-bearing trees has encouraged the return of tui, bellbirds, and shining cuckoo. We get occasional visits from wood pigeons, kaka, and herons.

The abundant insect life around the ponds and lushly planted Park provides for kingfisher, ruru, geckos, and frogs.

The control of possums and other animal pests continues to be an essential requirement to maintain the habitat for native wildlife as well as common introduced species.
