Pukaha Mount Bruce, situated in the Wairarapa, provides education programmes that encourage students to explore environmental issues in a way that can not be replicated in the classroom. The ancient forest setting provides an ideal opportunity to encounter kiwi, takahe, stitchbirds (hihi), kakako, kaka and tuatara. In addition to seeing these species up close, students can learn what is being done to protect them for the future. Students can also learn about and help feed the monster longfin eels and even watch the wild kakas eat their afternoon tea.
Programmes are designed and delivered to new entrants through to Year 13, in a unique, safe, outdoor learning environment. All programmes are curriculum-linked and specifically suited to school groups' requirements.
