Date: 16 October 2015Mohua/yellowhead in Fiordland's Eglinton valley received a top up yesterday with the release of 80 birds transferred from Anchor Island in Dusky Sound.
Date: 15 September 2015Eighty mohua/yellowhead were successfully moved to Coal Island, to establish a new population and spread the range of the bird's recovery on offshore pest-free islands.
Date: 26 August 2014The Department of Conservation completed its Battle for our Birds aerial 1080 pest control operation in the Waitutu Forest in Fiordland National Park yesterday.
Date: 25 July 2014The recent rediscovery of threatened mohua/yellowhead in Waikaia Forest, northern Southland, means an upcoming pest control operation is essential.
Date: 08 November 2013Twenty two yellowhead/mohua were successfully moved from the Catlins Conservation Area in Otago to Resolution Island in Fiordland this week. The transfer is part of an exciting project to create a super site for mohua.
Date: 30 January 2012Makarora Valley is now getting extra protection from predators thanks to a donation from the Mohua Charitable Trust.
