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.

It's time to start saving water Wellington. ?
Every week our team of engineers gather to review the region's water use. The warm weather over the last week has seen a large spike in water use, as well as a drop in our river levels. ☀
The graph below shows that our available water supply is just meeting demand. It's important we all start using less water now so that we have plenty to get us through the summer period.
Thank you in advance for doing your bit so that we can have access to clean water all summer long.
You can find some easy tips on how to start saving water on our website ?
Does anyone have any old bricks lying around that they don't need please? We are using them to edge some new gravel beds in the garden. It doesn't matter how battered-looking they are, as long as they are intact.
