Native species thrive where we live, work and play

Community Engagement

Native species like kiwi and kōkako aren't the only ones who call Hawke's Bay home. Iwi and hapū, landowners, farmers, business owners, young families and retirees make up just part of the diverse human population in this region.

For Cape to City to flourish, it will take the understanding and effort of the community at large to carry our vision into the future. We're dedicated to talking with people like you!  in New Zealand and abroad to help them learn about our work and support the project's vision of returning native species to our landscape.

Where can you find us sharing our story? Check out some of the resources below:

  • We reach out to local, regional and national news outlets on a regular basis to celebrate translocations, promote community events and spread the word about project breakthroughs. Keep an eye out for the latest by visiting our News page.

Inspiring our young people the future decision-makers of New Zealand is the goal of Cape to City's dedicated Education team. We've worked closely with schools throughout the region to help spread our project's vision. Through these partnerships, many Hawke's Bay students have already had the opportunity to see a wild kiwi in its natural habitat or let bush wetas crawl up their arms!
