KAPOW – ‘Keeping  Arthurs Point Original Wildlife’ (Sararose Brown & Jeannie Galavazi)
KAPOW is a conservation group working with the Arthurs Point Community Association that is actively involved in the Arthur’s Point Ecological Restoration Project.  They have partnered with DOC and the Wakatipu Reforestation Trust and seek Rotary’s support in their endeavors. 
Currently restoring the Morningstar Reserve, KAPOW have planted 2500+ native plants in the last 2 years. In addition, over the last 3 years, they have established 200 predator traps to eradicate predators and encourage birdlife back, in particular our native birds.  The Kereru (native wood pigeon), Morepork and the NZ native Falcon have been seen recently in the area for the first time in many years.  The group is seeking help to create a corridor down to the beach on the Shotover River and the protection of  a stand of existing Totara and Beech located there. 
We learned that a group of Tucker Beach residents are also getting to work in the Tucker’s Beach Wildlife Reserve to restore their part of the world.
