Achievements
Since its foundation in 2005, the Pomona Island Charitable Trust, together with its dedicated volunteers and financial supporters, has eradicated possums, deer, stoats, rats and mice from Pomona Island. Robins, mohua and the critically endangered Haast tokoeka kiwi have been released onto Pomona and are thriving.

Challenges
Keeping Pomona predator-free is a significant challenge for the Trust as the island is within swimming range of the mainland. Incursions by mice, rats and stoats mean that the Trust is constantly battling to maintain the island as a safe sanctuary for our native birds.

Restoring Pomona and Rona Islands on Lake Manapouri

Our Vision
The Pomona Island Charitable Trust is strongly focussed on conservation. We are restoring New Zealand's largest inland island as a sanctuary for native birds, including many threatened species. Pomona Island is relatively easily accessible and is a place where visitors will be able to imagine Fiordland as it was before introduced predators became established.
