The recovery efforts will be focused at the eight ‘security sites’ to ensure the retention of viable duck population at these sites and making them fully operational. Recovery work will be extended to cover long-term ‘recovery sites’.

The Whio Forever Recovery Programme complements the current whio recovery efforts effectively doubling the current level of work.

DOC is currently working with a number of private and public organisations and community groups across the country on whio recovery. These initiatives underpin the recovery work and are critical to achieving viable whio population.
