The Eastern Bays Songbird Project is a community conservation group with a vision of creating an area vibrant with bird life; where tūī, fantail/pīwakawaka and kererū already present in the Eastern Bays are joined by visiting kākāriki, bellbird/korimako and kākā from the nearby pest-free offshore islands in the Hauraki Gulf.


The Songbird Project operates over 4000 hectares and includes our original project zone of Ōrākei, Mission Bay, Kohimarama, St Heliers and Glendowie, with the addition of Remuera, St Johns, Meadowbank, Glen Innes, Wai o Taiki Bay, and Pt England.
