Taranaki Mounga will have volunteer opportunities for bird monitoring on Mt Taranaki in October and February.

October 2017 monitoring will involved walking public tracks and following up any sightings of toutouwai/robin on the Mounga.

In February 2018 will will be undertaking post-breeding monitoring.  The main purpose of this monitoring is to look at whether the toutouwai/robin released on the Mounga earlier in 2017 are breeding successfully.

The surveys will involve walking marked monitoring lines, on public tracks, looking and listening for birds. The terrain can be challenging so you’ll need a good level of fitness, a keen ear and a sharp eye.

If you are interested in being involved register with Emily King from the Taranaki Mounga team eking@doc.govt.nz
