Bequeathed to Forest & Bird by the late GF Moore in 1962, Bushy Park has been diligently cared for by a local Trust which has seen the erection of an X-cluder Pest Proof Fence around the Park, the forest now cleared of introduced predators and the hundred year old Homestead lovingly maintained. 

Today a healthy, regenerated forest is home to a growing number of native birds including the very rare and beautiful saddleback (tieke), north island robin, native pigeon (kereru), morepork, tui, bellbird, nz falcon, tomtit and others. 
The forest includes a number of giant trees, among them 'Ratanui', the world's largest northern Rata.  Well-formed tracks provide visitors with easy access to the bush and birds.

You are invited to join the Sanctuary by becoming a member.
