Tui Nature Reserve Ecological Restoration Project

Personal Note

Brian and Ellen Plaisier arrived in NZ in 1992 from the Netherlands. In 1994 they started protecting Tui Nature Reserve on a remote peninsula in the Outer Pelorus that you can only reach by boat. The family expanded with their three children Leona, Liam and Esmae. The family built, with the help of many volunteers from all over the world, the award winning wildlife sanctuary. For the past 25 years the focus of the family has been on reversing the decline of native wildlife, and the restoration of natural habitat and the breeding of native species like Giant Weta, Kakariki and Geckos.
Brian will share his entertaining stories about swapping suburban life for a life in the middle of nowhere, with 40 hectares of beautiful land and without any buildings, water or power.
