Tiri Tiri Matangi Island

New Zealand works hard to protect it's native wildlife from foreign predators and TiriTiri (the popular shortening of the name) is one of the most successful community-led conservation projects in the world. Maori mythology considers the island to be a float of an ancestral fishing net. 30Km north-east of Auckland, it is home to rare & endangered wildlife, and the replanted bush provides food and habitat for native birds including popokotea, kokako and kiwi, as well as NZ’s largest insect, the wetapunga. Tiritiri is also proud to have NZ's oldest lighthouse, once the most powerful in the southern hemisphere.
