our Ecology services, great barrier island

Love our Environment

Great Barrier Island, Aotea is the largest island within the Hauraki Gulf, situated 93 km northeast of Auckland. We have a unique, wonderful and rich environment of native flora and fauna. Such species include native trout Galaxidae spp, Koura freshwater crayfish, Hochestetter’s frog, long-tailed bat, chevron skink, pateke, black petrel, dotterel, kaka, kereru, kakariki (and others).

Ecology is a term used to describe the interaction between organisms and their environment. Terrestrial, freshwater and coastal environments are intrinsically connected, and we believe in a holistic ecosystem based approach that incorporates the relationship between the natural environment and people.
