PanPac Kiwi Creche
Strata Group is a major contributor to the PanPac Kiwi Creche at Lake Opouahi. The project comprises a 35 ha area of land around Lake Opouahi, enclosed by predator proof fencing. The crèche provides a safe environment for young kiwi chicks to grow to a size where they can be released to fend for themselves in the Kaweka Ranges.
Strata Group was involved in the design and construction of the 3.3km predator proof fence, access gates and weir structure. Working closely with the clients, the Environment, Conservation & Education Charitable Trust and the Department of Conservation to achieve what is one of New Zealand’s most successful predator proof enclosures.
