NZ dotterels need your help at North Piha

Volunteers wanted

A group of nationally vulnerable tuturiwhatu pukunui, or Northern New Zealand dotterels, nested at North Piha last summer. Auckland Council put measures in place to protect the nests and the chicks managed to fledge, and Auckland Council need local people to help with monitoring their nests. They are seeking some dedicated volunteers who would like to help monitor the NZ dotterel chicks over summer 2017-2018.
