Return of the Tui: post release and breeding season monitoring
The translocation of tūi from Maud Island to Banks Peninsula was the first mainland transfer for this species; we were not sure what the birds would do when they were set free in their new home. Monitoring has allowed us to determine that the translocation was successful in the short term. We will continue monitoring tūi on the Peninsula for several years to evaluate the long-term success of the new population and inform management decisions.
