Paintings at Pukaha
It started in March but continues to June 22 so you can enjoy an exhibition of native bird paintings at Pukaha Mount Bruce.
Entry to the exhibition is free of charge.
In October 2013 Mauriora, the second white kiwi to be hatched at Pukaha Mount Bruce, was released into the Pukaha reserve. A close eye was kept on him and in February it was decided that his weight wasn’t being maintained. He was taken to Wildbase at Massey University where it was discovered he had ‘grass burrs’ in the roof of his mouth.
They were removed and his appetite quickly recovered.
He’s back in the Pukaha reserve and we’ll continue to keep an eye on him.
A refreshed website went live at the end of February and staff at the reserve are really pleased with the new look. Have a look at www.pukaha.org.nz
Two key areas focused on were ensuring that opening hours and prices are clearly stated on the front page, along with “where we are” directions. They have made this website mobile friendly as more people are using mobile devices such as iPads and smartphones to make decisions about where to go and what to do.
