A new partnership between two conservation groups has lead to signing a Memorandum of Understanding which could see a “kaka creche” be introduced to the region.

The document signed today confirmed the desire and joint effort of the Brook Waimarama Sanctuary and Project Janszoon to reintroduce native species.

Project Janszoon director Devon McLean said the collaboration was inevitable.

“We’ve been talking pretty much since Janszoon started,” he said.

“It became obvious that there were things that we should stay in touch on, a whole range of things. We thought it might be useful to formalise that in a memorandum so we’ve got a record there of what we want to focus on.”

The two groups will be looking at joining together for a number of projects McLean said.

“Everything from the experience that the volunteers have and a chance to mix that up a bit between the two projects through to things like birds coming back in.”
