A New Cloak for Matiu - Janet Hector

Matiu / Somes Island at the centre of Wellington harbour is seen by thousands of Wellingtonians and visitors every single day. Over the past 30 years there has been a transformation - bare slopes giving way to the dark green of regenerating bush and the creation of a sanctuary for endangered species including kakariki, lizards, weta and tuatara.

A New Cloak for Matiu, written by Janet Hector and published by the Lower Hutt branch of Forest & Bird tells the fascinating story of the plant and animal species that have been returned to the island. It records the vision, hard work, setbacks and triumphs of one of the earliest large-scale ecological restoration projects in New Zealand.
