There will be a variety of reports presented by Derek Shaw as Acting Chair, Treasurer Mark Davies, and Trust staff, encompassing up to date information about financials, operations, pest-proof fence construction, sanctuary development, and the Trust’s dynamic professional team.


Following the meeting’s business there will be informal social time in the student centre’s Ake Ake Café. Please bring a plate (dessert or nibbles) to contribute. Copies of Paradise Saved – The Remarkable Story of New Zealand’s Wildlife Sanctuaries and How They Are Stemming the Tide of Extinction, co-authored by myself, will be available for purchase via cash or credit card, with a portion of proceeds to go to the Brook Sanctuary.

We look forward to your continuing support as we embark on the next exciting stage of the sanctuary’s development—completion of the pest-proof fence, and the ensuing removal of pests from the sanctuary site to allow for the creation of a wildlife sanctuary on Nelson’s doorstep, envisioned to become Nelson’s foremost visitor attraction and New Zealand’s richest conservation environment for visitors, education, and research.

You can continue to support us through annual memberships, volunteering, and donations—including fence post sponsorships and recurring monthly financial support as a Friend of the Brook Sanctuary. To learn more about providing support, please visit our web site: or contact us on 546 2422.
