Find out information about the history of the Rotoiti Nature Recovery Project.
Find out about the vegetation, birds and other animals at Rotoiti.
The goals and objectives for this project have gone through several iterations during the last ten years although the direction has not changed significantly.
The primary focus is on learning how to carry out ecological restoration by addressing management questions through rigorous trials and experiments combined with intensive monitoring.
Key objectives are to test the effectiveness of management techniques and for that reason all activities are closely monitored.
The most important lesson has been the proven effectiveness of stoat and possum control for preventing kaka extinction on the South Island mainland.
