The Project

Eastern Bays Songbird Project Inc. is a non-governmental organisation in Auckland, New Zealand. We aim to restore and regenerate the natural ecosystems of the Eastern Bays to create a sanctuary alive with birds, enhancing the lives of our residents and visitors.

To achieve this, we will mobilise the community to take action both on their properties and in local open spaces to provide environments where populations of birds and invertebrates can flourish. We will work with local people and organisations already trapping pests and encourage and coordinate the local community to trap throughout the residential areas. This project will contribute significantly and be integral to Pest Free Auckland 2050 and Predator Free NZ 2050.

Our Area

The Songbird Project now operates over 4,000 hectares. It includes our original project zone of Ōrākei, Mission Bay, Kohimarama, St Heliers and Glendowie and with the recent expansion into Remuera, Meadowbank, St Johns, Stonefields, Glen Innes, Wai o Taiki Bay, and Point England. The Songbird Project area is bordered on three sides by water: the Waitematā Harbour to the north, Tāmaki Estuary to the east and Pourewa Creek to the west.
