Green Ribbon Award for Pomona Island Trust
Congratulations to the hardworking volunteers of Pomona Island Trust who were well recognised for all their efforts with the presentation of a Green Ribbon Award last week. This recognised their work in the protection of biodiversity, with the removal of pests from Pomona and Rona Island and the reintroduction of the the threatened bird species, mohua or yellowhead. Pomona Island is also playing an important part in the Haast kiwi breeding programme, acting as a nursery for the young kiwi until they are large enough to be released in to their natural West Coast territory, which isn’t so predator free.
