Sanctuary Mountain Maungatautari - the project: the past, current status and future plans.
Did you know there’s an ancient forest on our doorstep, just one hour from Rotorua? An ecological delight, this 3,400 hectare mountain is protected by a 46km pest proof fence to enable native wildlife to be released.
Sanctuary manager Geoff Churchill will update us at Rotorua U3A’s February forum on developments in the Sanctuary Mountain Maungatautari project.
He’ll explain in depth what Sanctuary Mountain Maungatautari actually is and how the Maungatautari Ecological Island Trust works towards achieving its mission.
He’ll be touching on the natural history of the maunga (mountain) and also looking at the successes and the challenges to date and at the future of this enduringly ambitious project over the next five, ten and 50 years.
