Parihaka ‘BioBlitz’

The Parihaka ‘Bioblitz’ is a quick and intensive environmental survey to provide a snapshot of an area’s biodiversity. It’s the first of its kind in Whangārei and Tiakina Whangārei are planning to make it a huge success with the help of a wide range of community environmental organisations, all working towards the same goal of protecting the biodiversity within our city’s taonga – Parihaka.

Get involved in our local natural environment, right on our doorstep!

Predator Free pupils presents their findings

Where: Stall at Parua Bay School, 150 Year Gala

When: NEW DATE – Saturday 18th February, 11:am – 3:00pm

Year 7 students at Parua Bay School have been helping the possum eradication project by monitoring  the presence/absence of these marsupials. The students have been working with the field team to service trail cameras and classify the images. A few students will be presenting their findings and providing some solutions on how we can deal with pest problems!
