Otekiho Reserve, Otago Peninsula

Looking towards Otekiho (hillside in distance, middle of photo)

This 5 hectare reserve is owned by the Dunedin City Council, protected under the Reserves Act 1977 and managed by the Yellow-eyed Penguin Trust. Hoiho formerly bred in this reserve and currently the more common Little penguins are breeding here. Revegetation efforts were hindered by the extensive damage from rabbits, despite plant protection, but today regular rabbit control is resulting in new plantings surviving.

Many of the plantings are now undertaken by Monarch Wildlife Cruises to offset their carbon footprint. There is no public access to this reserve.
