What You May See

It is delightful to meet nature on nature’s terms, not a zoo! Orokonui has brought back species that have been locally extinct for 100’s of years and native species already in the sanctuary are thriving. Our first re-introduction was the South Island kaka in 2008 and the most recent the Otago skink. Many more are in the planning stages.
