Fulton Hogan is the primary partner of the Department of Conservation’s Takahē Recovery Programme. This is enabling staff and families to make a meaningful, hands-on contribution to conservation. Since the partnership launch in 2016, Fulton Hogan has become an active champion for takahē. It has also implemented other conservation initiatives.
Through the Takahē Recovery Programme and in collaboration with others (local iwi, Mitre 10 Mega and Air New Zealand), a selection of takahē have been translocated to Kahurangi National Park. Fulton Hogan provides skilled volunteers and technical expertise to takahē recovery operations and advocates for the plight of NZ threatened species. It has also identified locations to undertake restoration and predator control on its own land in collaboration with neighbours to benefit local biodiversity. Fulton Hogan utilises its technical expertise to find innovative solutions for conservation challenges, for example predator proof culverts at fenced sanctuaries.
