This volunteer group manages 500 hectares of native forest in the Kaimai Mamaku Conservation Park, between Tauranga and Katikati.
The project was set up in 2006 by Tauranga Forest and Bird and the Katikati Rotary Club and is supported by local volunteers, landowners and Ngai Tamawhariua who have the Kaitiaki (guardianship) role over this forest.
The aim of the project is to restore the wildlife and plant life to a part of the Kaimai Mamaku Forest Park. It carries out extensive, ongoing pest control.
Launched in 2015, Cape to City's vision is to transform the landscapes of our region so that 'Native species thrive where we live, work and play'.
Cape to City is located in Te Matau a Māui/Hawke’s Bay on the east coast of New Zealand's North Island. We're one of the first projects in the country to scale up biodiversity restoration and predator control.
The group plants areas that were grass or weeds with plants raised from eco-sourced seed by another volunteer group (Friends of the Waikanae River). We weed the areas we have planted and also earlier plantings and we weed areas of existing bush. We also remove seedlings and saplings of weed trees species including species not native to the local area.
The area comprises pastoral land, exotic forestry, shrubland, indigenous forest remnants, and streams and adjacent wetlands. Several threatened species are in the area including, North Island Brown Kiwi, Kereru (New Zealand Pigeon) and Kauri Snail. The location is of great historical significance having been the centre of significant events in Maori and Early European history. The aims of the Trust are: Education about and awareness of ecosystems and landscapes Preservation of ecosystems and historic landscapes Planting and protection of trees and other flora Facilitating an environment
