The Shakespear Open Sanctuary Society Incorporated (“SOSSI”) is an incorporated society and registered charity established in 2004 for the purpose of assisting Auckland Council with the establishment and development of the sanctuary.
SOSSI has successfully built a pest proof fence and removed pests from the sanctuary and are currently mostly working on enhancing the environment of the Sanctuary so new species can be introduced
With the range of habitats within the Park the Sanctuary is currently home to a good range of birds including kereru, tui, bellbirds, kakariki and, with the absence of pests, a number of ground nesting birds including pukeko and pheasant. A number of kiwi have also been introduced. There are also a diverse range of lizards including four species of native skink, Auckland green gecko, Pacific gecko and forest gecko
