Motuara Island is a bird sanctuary in the Marlborough Sounds. All introduced pests were removed in the 1990's and the island is now home to a variety of vulnerable native species. These include saddleback (tieke), NZ robin (toutouwai), bellbird (korimako), tui, grey warbler (riroriro), NZ pigeon (kereru), silver eye (tauhou), fantail (piwakawaka), the endangered South Island Saddleback, the very rare king shag, Maud Island frog, and the Marlborough green gecko.
