This blatant disregard for the sanctity of reserve land is morally reprehensible.

Auckland Council have been informed and are taking this illegal act seriously and investigations are underway.

Our reserves need our protection. They are vital not only from an ecological standpoint but also our community's physical and mental health, particularly during these uncertain times. If you ever see illegal dumping, please immediately report it by calling 0800 NO DUMP (0800 663 867), available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.⁠

Please share this video with your networks, to make people aware our reserves need protecting.⁠

Drop-in at any time between 8:30-9:30pm.

Find us at Shepherd's Park on the field by the Melba Street entrance.

Rain dates TBC in early March.

We are launching a series of bat-detection evenings with a drop-in session at Shepherd's Park. Come along to see if you can be the one to discover critically endangered pekapeka-tou-roa / long-tailed bats in Kaipatiki!

We will show you how to use bat-detectors and what to look (and listen) for when you are hunting bats. Our friendly team will be on hand to chat to you about why we are searching for bats, why they are important and what you can do at home to give them a helping hand. We might even be able to help you identify some of those strange night-time noises you hear in the bush!

Bring a torch, preferably one with a red-light setting, warm clothes and wear covered shoes like sneakers.

We care about the health of our staff and community so we require that attendees show a valid vaccine pass on arrival, adhere to social distancing measures and wear a mask when they attend our bat-detection sessions.

Please stay home if you are feeling unwell.
