Conference Field Trips

One-day and two-day field trips are currently being planned highlighting Waikato and New Zealand's biodiversity conservation locations including:

  1. Sanctuary Mountain: Maungatautari Ecological Island, a 3400 reserve surrounded by 47 kilometres of predator-proof fencing is possibly the only place on mainland New Zealand where a glimpse of our former native biodiversity can be experienced, including rare and incredible birds, reptiles and plants.
  2. Tongariro National Park: Tongariro is New Zealand's oldest national park and a dual World Heritage area. This status recognises the park's important Maori cultural and spiritual associations as well as its outstanding volcanic features. This area is a different ecological world with cutting edge conservation and restoration underway.)
  3. Waitomo Caves: An amazing limestone landscape that is home to a range of natural underground wonders. These caves provide unique habitat for some special flora and fauna and promise an exciting experience for all.
