The Punakaiki Coastal Restoration Project (PCRP) was established to restore sand plain forest to a landscape that had been previously mined and farmed. Over 100,000 trees have been planted to date. The site is adjacent to the Nikau Scenic Reserve which is highly ecologically significant, and it is in the flight path of a unique Westland black petrel colony. Research investigating the potential indicators of ecological restoration success at the PCRP was undertaken over two years. This 12-month research report adds to a baseline survey of the site completed in 2012.
