Tiritiri Matangi ("looking to the wind" or "wind tossing about") is one of the most successful conservation projects in the world. Unwanted predators have been eradicated, and the once-pastoral island has been replanted with native trees. Rare native birds and animals have been returned to its now-safe and 16lived habitats.

As an open sanctuary you can visit Tiritiri Matangi and see some of New Zealand's most endangered birds in the wild, including takahē, kōkako, saddleback/tīeke and hihi or stitchbird.
