Robins back on Pomona Island
The hard work of the Pomona Island Trust volunteers eradicating predators off the Manapouri island over the last few years has come to fruition with the recent release of the South Island robin into the area. This achievement recognises the major effort of the trustees, along with the 160 plus people that they have encouraged to put in over 3,300 volunteer hours. This robin release is the beginning of the reintroduction of bird species now gone from the island, with the release of yellowhead, saddleback and then kiwi planned over the next few years, along with the ongoing pest control work. Check out the Pomona Island restoration under Projects.
