The Brook Waimarama Sanctuary, Nelson 7010, Nelson Region, New Zealand
The Brook Waimarama Sanctuary is a 715 hectare mainland “ecological island” sanctuary located in Nelson, New Zealand. The Brook Waimarama Sanctuary Trust was established in 2004 with the intent of restoring the local populations of pre-European flora and fauna which have been ravaged by introduced mammalian predators. Invasion by introduced weeds also poses a threat. The sanctuary may also be used in the future as a site where endangered species such as the South Island kākā may be protected. The sanctuary is open to the public and encourages visitors.
