Ark in the Park has been the subject of many research projects looking at a range of topics such as the distribution of native species, managing predator control in a mainland island, and the complexity of our forest. 

This has seen us work with researchers from institutions both here in New Zealand and overseas. The Ark has also been studied by several postgraduate students as part of research projects and theses.
