About this project

This imaginative app brings three creatures to life on your screen – tūī, jewelled gecko and tree weta.

While they are locally extinct from Christchurch city, on nearby Banks Peninsula, trusts, landowners, community groups and organisations are all working to restore their habitat.

Tuī, gecko and weta represent what could be, if conservation was in the consciousness of all urban New Zealanders. 

Imagine if they did such a good job, you could see them in your backyard too! 

It starts right here. Share, wonder and think – what could I do? What might be possible if we all worked together?

Designed by innovative artists and 'techies' Flightless and Ali Teo.
