Kauri Park, Muriel Fisher & Fernglen Halo

  • Facebook

The Kauri Park, Muriel Fisher and Fernglen Halo includes some of the most spectacular wild places in Auckland.  These reserves have been designated as a Biodiversity Focus Area due to their diverse and unique wildlife. Mangrove and raupō wetlands that transition into mature broad-leaved forest can be discovered within.  These ecosystems are home to a number of bird species including banded rails, riroriro, kōtare, ruru and tūī to name a few.

Do you live within the Halo area?

The map shows the perimeter of the Halo area, which is bordered by Island Bay Road, Rangatira Road, Waipa Street, Balmain Road and Onetaunga Road.  Do you live within this area or nearby and want to help? If so we would love to hear from you.

The rat symbols indicate control devices deployed by the community to help keep predator numbers down and protect the area.  You can also contribute to the Halo by deploying one on your property.  If you would like to, please get in touch.
