Discover the wild side of the Bay of Islands

Project Island Song is the Bay of Islands’ wildlife sanctuary. The seven main islands in the eastern Bay of Islands have been pest mammal free since 2009, and the natural eco-systems are being restored. We are bringing back birdsong to the islands, note by note.
