WILDLIFE RESTORATION ON CAPE KIDNAPPERS PENINSULA, HAWKE'S BAY.
Cape Sanctuary is a relatively new, and so far unique, approach to a huge conservation challenge in New Zealand. At 2500 hectares, the Sanctuary is the largest privately owned and funded wildlife restoration project of its kind in New Zealand. This is a project I am very proud to be a part of, not only with the hands-on voluntary work, but with this ongoing photographic record of the animals that now inhabit this very special place.
The Sanctuary is situated on the Cape Kidnappers peninsula and includes native forest, coastal dunes and cliffs, grazed gullies, farmland and even an international golf course.
