Forest & Bird is Aotearoa/New Zealand’s leading independent conservation organisation.
We speak to Michael Voss and Anne Smith about their passion in returning back to the land to nurture and look after our beautiful ngāhere, water ways and manu (birds). Their kōrero inspires us we are dependant on our environment, that it sustains us mentally & emotionally, and that it needs us to be better caretakers.
There are many Forest and Bird reserves in the Rangitīkei that freely open to the public. Pack lunch and take a break from the noise and enjoy a peaceful walk through one of these reserves. You’ll be glad you did.
For more information on these reserves and where to find them, or if you would like to help towards conserving nature in the Rangitīkei check out the link below: https://www.forestandbird.org.nz/branches/rangitikei
