Kererū are returning to the region in large numbers but unfortunately those who look after injured birds are seeing them in increasing numbers.
For nearly twenty years, the Wellington Bird Rehabilitation Trust (WBRT) has been operating a rehabilitation hospital located in rural Ohariu, near Johnsonville. Run by Craig Shepherd, the centre is mostly self-funded with help from volunteers, donors and the community.
