Matuku - What’s in a name?

Matuku is the Māori name for the Australasian Bittern, a large bird that is part of  the Heron family. Mostly found in wetlands, the Matuku is on the endangered birds list with less than 1,000 left in New Zealand. The Matuku is a secretive bird and with its distinctive booming call, is often heard more than it is seen.

Matuku appear in many Māori historical accounts and stories, and are recorded in early artwork. For generations, Matuku was an important bird for Māori, providing a food source and highly valued feathers that were once used in ceremonial decoration.  With the regeneration and plantation of the wetland plants at Te Whāriki, we would love to see them back here one day.
