Kapiti Island Nature Tours


Kapiti-Island-3@720px

Kapiti Island is around 5km off the west coast of the southern North Island, just one hours drive north of Wellington. It is 10km long and around 2km wide and it covers 1,965 hectares. The Island is a nature reserve – an area set aside for the protection of native plants and native birds, and where human influence is monitored and kept to a bare minimum. As a nature reserve it remains the most protected of public lands, and today the sheer abundance and diversity of birdlife gives testimony to the decades of careful management, good planning and much hard work.

For over a hundred years now Kapiti Island has been managed by the New Zealand Government in order to protect its flora and fauna. Kapiti Island stands as one of the jewels in the crown of New Zealand’s conservation estate as it provides the necessary pest and predator free environment for many of New Zealand’s most endangered bird species.
