Stronger Greener Christchurch

The iconic sound of Tūī song is set to return to Christchurch backyards with a major habitat restoration programme.

Launched last year, our goal is to establish a corridor of tūī friendly vegetation between the Port Hills and the central city.

The Tūī Corridor project is a partnership between Meridian Energy and The Christchurch Foundation and the first project to be rolled out under the ‘Stronger, Greener Christchurch’ programme. The programme aims to make greater Ōtautahi Christchurch a better place to live through renewable energy and sustainability initiatives.

Having Tūī as regular visitors to the city once again is something all of us can look forward to. The more residents that plant Tūī tucker in their backyards, the more successful the project will be.

Meridian and the Foundation will be planting islands of Tūī vegetation in Christchurch twice a year in consultation with local communities.

This is another step towards building a city at the forefront of New Zealand’s transition toward a greener, more liveable and sustainable future.
