Bird watch - Mana Island gannet colonyResene Paints

When it came time to redecorate the Mana Island gannet colony to attract birdlife, Resene Sureseal pigmented sealer was ideal to make good the weathered surfaces followed by Resene Lumbersider in black, white and yellow. The gannets inhabiting the area had been out in the weather becoming dull and shabby. Their guano had been overtaken by grass, weeds and taupata, discouraging any self-respecting gannets flying by from stopping in for a closer look.

Keen to assist with the cause, Resene supplied the paint needed to recoat the concrete gannets and decorate part of the Western face of Mana with white Resene Lumbersider guano. As the paintwork progresses, real life gannets have been sighted in the area checking out the quality of the work and it is hoped as the work is completed that some may stop in for a closer ground inspection.
