Tūī Corridor Project

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.

Governors Bay Jetty

Governors Bay Jetty

For almost 150 years, Governors Bay Jetty has drawn people from far and wide to a magical seascape at the head of the harbour.

Since the earthquakes, the Jetty has sat in disrepair… but not for much longer! With over $1 million raised so far, the Trust will soon sign a construction contract to begin the rebuild in 2022.
