Mawaihakona Stream Restoration (friends of the Mawaihakona)

Friends of Mawaihakona Stream was formed in 2002 by Bart Hogan, Kerry & Brian Brickell in order to covert the Mawaihakona stream from a willow infested mess to lowland podocarp forest as it would have once been. In recent years, the Friends have gained permission to restore a large section of the stream as it passes through land owned by St Patrick's college Silverstream.

Windsor Park Ark

We are an interested group of teachers and students at Rangitoto College who are working each year to clear weed species from a small area of bush in the school grounds and replace them with native species. We aim to turn this 3 ha area into a wonderful outdoor classroom resource with paths, signage and other useful resources for students and the community. Neighbouring properties are also involved

Saving kiwi in Taranaki is our project name. We have a large in-situ project covering 13,000 hectares, where predator control is undertaken. We are a successful community driven group which has 500 pair of kiwi under predator protection. The area is home to many other threatened native species.
