160731 Tree Planting at Motuihe Island

Tree Planting at Motuihe Island

Winter is Auckland’s planting season because we have more rain. Trees are very important to our environment and are especially good for combating Climate Change. We should all do our best and plant more trees.

31st July (Sunday) we are going to plant trees in Motuihe Island. Motuihe Island is a lovely small Island, has 2 back to back sandy beaches. When one beach is windy, the other one will be calm and peaceful. Motuihe Island area is only 440 sq acres. It is a very special island. Not only that it has long and rich history, it is also a predator’s free island. After a lot of time and effort put in by DOC & volunteers, in 2005, the island is free of small animals and is paradise for birds. Since we are volunteering our time, we can enjoy a special ferry fare. This should be a very good chance to visit the island and to contribute our effort to protect the environment.
