About Tiritiri Matangi Island
Tiritiri Matangi Island is a wildlife sanctuary and one of New Zealand’s most important and exciting conservation projects. It is located 30km north east of central Auckland and just 4km from the end of the Whangaparaoa Peninsula. A hundred and twenty years of farming had seen this 220-hectare island stripped of 94% of its native bush but between 1984 and 1994, volunteers planted between 250,000 and 300,000 trees. The Island is now 60% forested with the remaining 40% left as grassland for species preferring open habitat.
Live Cams on Tiritiri Matangi Island
The very first live cam on Tiritiri Matangi was installed in May 2021 outside the Islands gift store. This is a fantastic place to rest and eat lunch while enjoying the antics of the large nectar feeders. The high-res AxisPTZ camera is situated to maximize the view of the large natural feeding station. More Live Cam projects are in the plans on Tiritiri Matangi which could include a Kōkako nesting cam.
