A thousand trees for Arbor Day - 30th May 2012

Hoiho - a Yellow-eyed Penguin
Thoughtplanters will be supporting the Yellow-eyed Penguin Trust in its goal to plant 1000 trees this Arbor Day

The Trust is committed to creating natural environments where threatened yellow-eyed penguins can thrive. For Arbor Day 2012 (June 5), the Trust plans to plant 1000 trees at the Okia Reserve, on the Otago Peninsula. Click here to find out more information about this event.

While the Arbor Day activities are Dunedin based, the Trust manages land and penguin interests across the entire South Island of New Zealand. The Yellow-eyed Penguin is found only along the South Islands’ eastern coastline, as far north as Banks Peninsula and as far south as Stewart Island and beyond to Campbell Island.

The Trust carries out conservation work restoring coastal forests and controlling predators. While predominantly for penguins the revegetation programmes also provide habitat of other fauna and flora of the region. The Trust is a highly respected conservation organisation working with the Department of Conservation and the Ministry of Conservation.

The Trust locally sources the trees and shrubs that grows on in its nursery – it is these trees that will be used in the 1000 tree Arbor Day revegetation programme.
