It’s that time of year again to pop in and see the lovely ladies at the Bluff Service Centre and support the Bluff Hill Motupohue Environment Trust by picking up your copy of their 2020 calendar - hot off the press!

Thanks Real Journeys!

After a tough day beach combing, all you need a good cuppa AND a fabulous afternoon tea!

A massive THANK YOU to Real Journeys for providing afternoon tea for our Beach Clean up volunteers during Conservation Week .

Real Journeys are a superstar in Southland Tourism - and we super grateful for this support of the BHMET and our conservation work.

The Bluff Hill Motupohue Environment Trust would not exist with our very specail kaitūao [volunteers]. We are delighted we get to meet such lovely people who share our same passion for Bluff and the environment - and volunteering is such a cool way to meet people!

This week we wish to thank Niamh Edgington and Hush Sutherland (and her human parents Karen & Haggis!) for being part of our special band of workers!

Niamh has been part of our Foveaux Walkway team, keeping our outter coastline trap line serviced, while Hush and her human parents have been manning one of our bush lines for the last 12 months. We wish Niamh the very best for her future in Conservation ( LOVE IT!) and we know we havent seen the last of Hush!

Thanks folks! We couldnt do this work without you!

If you’d like to volunteer, please email us at Enable JavaScript to view protected content. - we are always keen to accept donated time, 1 hour, 2 hours, or even a regular trap line!

The BHMET team would like to thank all of the amazing volunteers who supported our Annual Conservation Week Big Beach Clean-up yesterday!!!

We had a record number of volunteers with 92 participants!

The rubbish weight tally = 1550 kg - that’s over 1.5 tonnes and of that St Teresa’s staff and pupils collected 250 kg!
An epic day followed by a wonderful afternoon tea at the Anchorage Cafe - generously donated by Real Journeys!


Thanks to all involved, especially Tracker Black who coordinated the clean-up, big thanks to the land owners for allowing access and of course a huge thanks to all the volunteers for taking the time on a beautiful Saturday afternoon to support us. Here a a couple of pics of the day :)
Thanks again everyone BHMET ❤️
