Planting Tūī Corridor Together

We've teamed up with The Christchurch Foundation and organisations and volunteers from across Canterbury, to bring the tūī back to Ōtautahi Christchurch.

Together, we're planting tūī 'islands' to form a corridor of the tūī's favourite plants through the city, bringing our native birds across from Banks Peninsula. 

Tūī are currently a rare sight in the Garden City but have begun to make a home on the Peninsula. Through partnerships with organisations like the Christchurch Adventure Park and Ara Institute of Technology, we're creating a corridor of habitat and kai for our native species to thrive. 

We have future planting days this September which are open for volunteers. 

Join us and our amazing volunteers in planting tūī tucker throughout the corridor this spring

Do you have a spot in the corridor that could be a future tūī island? We still have a few trees this season ready for home.
