Pukaha Mt Bruce, New Zealand’s National Wildlife Centre, is the country’s most established and successful wildlife and captive breeding centre. Set in 943 hectares of ancient podocarp forest north of Masterton in the lower North Island, Pukaha Mt Bruce is home to many of New Zealand’s rare and endangered bird species including takahe, kokako, kaka, hihi (stitchbird) and our native icon the kiwi. It is also home to tuatara and monster native long-finned eels
As part of its commitment to our native environment, Pacific Coilcoaters recently helped support the filming of a television documentary pilot that will hopefully bring world-wide recognition of the work being done at Pukaha Mt Bruce.
