BNZ volunteers help make film for MEG

On 8 May the BNZ Coromandel Branch ‘closed for good’ and three BNZ staff came up to Waikawau Bay and gave Moehau Environment Group a helping hand.

The volunteers helped shoot and edit a short film clip about the work we are doing to protect biodiversity in the Northern Coromandel. Each year on May 8, Bank of New Zealand branches “close for good” so workers can get out of the office and give back to the community in a variety of ways.


A big thank-you to the Coromandel BNZers and award-winning filmmaker James Muir, for providing his expertise and gear and helping direct the day. The film clip will be used for promotion and advocacy and can be viewed here on Youtube.

Wayne Todd, Waikawau Bay Wetland Project leader thinks what the BNZ is doing is fantastic. “It’s great to have volunteers from our local community, lending a hand” said Wayne.

The BNZ Save the Kiwi Trust are the major sponsors of our Kiwi Sanctuary, which is helping to protect kiwi in the Northern Coromandel through stoat control.
