The Otunahe Scenic Reserve (approx 70 hectares) is a private QEII-covenanted reserve
which lies on the farm property of Bob and Karen Schumacher. Both the farm and the reserve are
within the much larger predator-controlled area cared for by the East Taranaki Environment Trust
(ETET). The reserve is a wonderful example of mature native forest.

The area has a rich biodiversity and is home to many of our native species including fernbird,
bellbird, tui, kereru, New Zealand robin, New Zealand falcon, whitehead and of course the
kiwi. (You won’t see or hear kiwi because they are nocturnal and shy and they are asleep in their
burrows—but you might see footprints, droppings or probe holes in the soil.)
