At Pākiri Beach Holiday Park we are proud to put the environment at the forefront of what we do. One of our two core values is Kaitiakitanga – Guardianship and protection for our land.We are committed to reducing our environmental impact by reducing waste, using eco-friendly resources and reducing our carbon footprint. Due to our fragile location, we are susceptible to the effects of climate change, and we strive to make a difference every day. We work closely with DOC, the local iwi and charitable organisations to help protect our fragile location.
With a population of approximately 12 breeding pairs, the New Zealand fairy tern is probably our most endangered indigenous bird. Pākiri Beach Holiday Park assist the Department of Conservation Recovery Plan by offering accommodation to the DOC ranger who protects the Pākiri fairy tern nesting site throughout the breeding season.The rangers’ duties include: monitoring breeding attempts, maintaining fences around nesting sites, nest translocation, predator identification and control (including video surveillance), egg and chick manipulation, public education, and law enforcement. Please help protect our native birds by keeping clear of the nesting areas marked by rope. You will notice these predominately to the north of the river. Emergency hotline please Call 0800 DOC HOT (0800 362 468) immediately if you see anyone catching, harming or killing native wildlife. Drones are not permitted to be used over the nesting area as they can scare the birds.
As members of the New Zealand predator free programme we offer a safe environment for native birds and endangered shore birds. With the use of traps and bait stations we are pleased to say we have our rat, possum, stoat and feral cat population under control. We recently used humane traps to catch a family of feral cats and kittens. All of the kittens were rehomed and one was flown all the way to France to live with a French couple that fell in love with the kitten while working at the park. Please notify a staff member if you spot a predator in the park.
