Sustainable Coastlines is a young, multi-award winning New Zealand charity run by a small team of hard-working staff and a network of passionate volunteers and interns. We love our coasts and we work with our sleeves rolled up to keep them beautiful. We coordinate and support large-scale coastal clean-up events, educational programs, public awareness campaigns and riparian planting projects. We also help groups run their own events. Through these efforts we motivate volunteers and communities around Aotearoa and the Pacific to look after the coastlines we all love.

Huia Weed Warriors has been going for 10 years. We have focussed most of our attention to date on a coastal area bordered on one side by the road and the other by the sea. It used to be a bit of a dumping ground. We have worked hard on removing weeds and planting with eco sourced plants. Our group is small but dedicated. We would love younger families to join us. We are looking at a new focus for our efforts for 2015.
Planting over for 2016, over 2300 planted this year, a totla of 5400 over three years now.
The Trust was established to be the leading contributor to the protection, enhancement and public enjoyment of Baring Head and its environs, and to assist the Greater Wellington Regional Council in its stewardship of the area.
