The iconic sound of Tūī song is set to return to Christchurch backyards with a major habitat restoration programme.
Launched in 2019, 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 greater Ōtautahi 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.

We are backing an important kaitiakitanga project to enhance the ecologically significant lowland native bush at Riccarton Bush.
Youth Hub Christchurch will be a turning point in the lives of our city’s young people.
Currently being constructed at 109 Salisbury Street in central Christchurch, it will house a dozen organisations working on the frontline of youth mental health and wellbeing. These organisations will deliver wrap-around services that help to break the cycle of adversity. They will enable all young people in Ōtautahi the opportunity to lead healthy, safe and valued lives, fulfilling their potential and vibrantly contributing to their community.
