The Wellington Bird Rehabilitation Trust is trying to raise $10,000 for an aviary for injured Kererū.
The WBRT has been operating a bird rehabilitation hospital located in 24 hectares of farmland in Ohariu, near Johnsonville, for many years,
It treats over 1,000 birds a year, taking in all types of native and non-native birds who have been injured or orphaned. This includes over 80 injured Kererū brought in annually by the community.
These big birds are much-loved and seen in increasing numbers in suburban areas, but unfortunately are often injured by cars, window strike, power lines, and by predators such as rats and stoats.

KiwiRail is upgrading the Interislander ferry terminal at Kaiwharawhara in Wellington?

Proposed changes include a new wharf, an upgraded terminal building and well-designed surrounds for parking, people and the safe movement of vehicles.

Work is planned to start next year, ready for the arrival of two bigger, and more environmentally friendly ferries from 2025.

The Interislander is considered one of the most beautiful in the world, so let’s create an arrival experience to match.

Consultation on proposed design for the Kaiwharawhara terminal is open now until 30 November. Go to wellingtonprecinct.co.nz and have your say.
