Often conservation efforts are put into our fauna over flora but in the Hawke's Bay a trust is doing both and doing it well. The Forest Lifeforce Restoration Trust run one of the most prolific kiwi breeding programmes in the country and are doing all they can on the same swathe of land to bring back some plant life from the brink of extinction. The Trust owns a four thousand hectare former pine forest inland from Hawke's Bay where they are reintroducing native species which in turn is encouraging native wildlife. Peter Shaw is a Trustee who's been working on the land which was bought in 2005.
