Mapara Wildlife Reserve

Mapara South Road
Mapiu, Waikato
Kokako can be heard and sometimes seen from a moderately graded tramping track. You are most likely to hear kokako call in the early morning or late evening. DOC says " Please do not go elsewhere in the reserve or trespass on neighbouring farmland."

Since 1989 the Mapara Wildlife Reserve (1400 hectares) has been the focus of an intensive, and very successful, conservation management project. When the project started the reserve's kokako population was in decline. Since management was initiated breeding success has steadily increased.
