• The Great Kererū Count (GKC) is an annual citizen science project encouraging New Zealanders to count the kererū that are present (or not present) in their neighbourhoods. Since 2014, scientists have been using this information to figure out how kererū are doing and the best way to protect them.

  • Counting how many kererū are (or aren’t) in our neighbourhoods is really important. City Sanctuary will be using results from the Great Kererū Count to see how community predator control is affecting native wildlife. If there is an increase in kererū numbers where people are doing backyard trapping, we can see that it is working!

  • From the 18th of September until the 27th of September 2020
