Half a million native plants and trees will be installed in Drury over the next five years through a partnership between local iwi Ngāti Tamaoho and the Drury South Crossing subdivision. Spanning 85 hectares, the ecological area is designed to provide a habitat for endangered native birds, lizards and bats. The project team worked closely with Auckland Council and mana whenua to develop diverse native planting types, representing historical vegetation in the area.
