Tawharanui Open Sanctuary Society
The Tawharanui Open Sanctuary Society (TOSSI) was formed in 2002 to help make the open sanctuary project a reality. The sanctuary is a unique blend of conservation, recreation and sustainable farming within Tawharanui Regional Park. The open sanctuary includes mature and regenerating native bush, wonderful beaches, spectacular coastal cliffs, wetlands, heritage sites, a marine park and extensive areas of rich pasture. Thanks to TOSSI species have returned to breed or been re-introduced to the sanctuary including kiwi, pateke, kakariki, bellbirds, robins, kaka and whiteheads. Recently 10 takahe were introduced to Tawharanui which are the first takahe to be released on the mainland in Auckland. This marks a huge step forward for takahe recovery efforts.
