Kia Ora from Kevin and TracyWelcome to our January 2022 Newsletter

Happy New Year and welcome to the first TFBT newsletter for 2022.

The team has continued to grow over the last few months, and it is with great pleasure that we introduce Eliane and David in this newsletter. Both David and Eliane have a huge amount of experience and knowledge and we are excited to have them join Cam in our predator control team.

Gary Simpson and Alan France have also joined the TFBT whanau as Trustees. Both Gary and Alan live in the TFBT rohe and bring a wealth of experience to our growing team. You can read more about Gary and Alan on our website About us | The Forest Bridge Trust

Of course as well as expanding our team, a big focus for us continues to be helping the Tamahunga Trappers prepare for the arrival of kiwi in March. There is much work to be done to get ready for the return of this very special taonga species to the maunga. In particular we have been working closely with the many landowners who live around Mt Tamahunga to ensure everything possible is done to protect the kiwi when they arrive. We are all super excited that the KIWI ARE COMING soon!

We must also thank the many local people and businesses who have shown their generosity and willingness to support the work of TFBT. We are forever grateful to the many people who share our passion to protect the amazing flora and fauna that we live alongside. In fact in this newsletter we share news about a business who is willing to extend this offer of support to another non-profit working on similar mahi in northern Rodney. If you are a group looking for accounting support then be sure to lookout for the article.

We hope you enjoy reading this edition of our newsletter. There was certainly plenty happening towards the end of 2021, and already plenty has happened in 2022. It is set to be an exciting year.

Wishing you all the very best

Kevin and Tracy
