We are a charitable conservation trust looking at protecting and restoring the Aorangi Range, surrounding land and coastline in the Southern Wairarapa to its former glory. This area consists of a 20K hectare recreational park, as well as another 20k hectares of surrounding land and coastline. Historically this environment was home to kiwis, whio, weka, northern rata and Little Blue Penguins to name a few.
We primarily aim to reduce invasive weeds and pests and increase native biodiversity and improve stream quality on suburban private property in the catchment. We also have an interest in more environmentally friendly storm water management and suburban infill, reserve management, protection of noble trees whether native or exotic, urban design that encourages walking and cycling, and increasing the production of food in the catchment.
To expand native vegetation in the Town Belt on Mt Victoria and to improve its biodiversity.
To re-introduce species natural to the podocarp/broadleaf forest of the wellington peninsular.
Te Kakano Aotearoa Trust is a community-based native plant nursery that specialises in propagating plants of local origin for native habitat restoration in the Upper Clutha Basin. We are a not-for-profit charitable organisation registered with the NZ Charities, #CC23553 and work with local community groups, schools, organisations & businesses in the effort to promote hands-on community land care.
The objectives of TFWG are:
The provision of information that will contribute to the well being of the forest and environs.
