Research and Publications

One of the key focuses of the Little Barrier Island (Hauturu) Supporters Trust is to support and enable research that will benefit the Island. Hauturu has unique native biodiversity and no remaining vertebrate pests. It is an excellent site for high quality scientific research to support conservation. We support high quality, publishable research which adds to knowledge of the species and ecosystems on Hauturu.

We aim to make published research about Hauturu available wherever possible, and we disseminate news and information via our biannual newsletter ‘Hauturu’. ‘Hauturu’ is provided free of charge to supporters upon publication, and back issues are made available via the website.
