Karori Wildlife Sanctuary
Nowhere else on the mainland are students and teachers able to walk through regenerating forest where rare and endangered wildlife such as tuatara, saddleback, hihi and many others live freely in their natural habitat. The Karori Sanctuary Trust offers a variety of environmental education programmes and supporting resource materials that provide students and teachers with positive and inspiring environmental experiences: in, about and for the environment.
