Marlborough Sounds - Tui Nature Reserve

Pelorus Sound, Marlborough Sounds

Tui Nature Reserve

As part of a peninsula with no road access, this reserve will in time become one of New Zealand's few 'mainland island' sanctuaries.

A shared vision with neighbours is to establish a predator free fence in the future to isolate the peninsula from the mainland.
