The Aro Valley Project (AVP) aims to restore and enhance NZ flora and fauna in a steeply sided but otherwise (by NZ standards) longstanding urbanised valley, located close to the heart of the country’s capital. 

By removing pest plants and predators, the AVP is seeking to maximise the valley’s potential for diversity, encourage the return of pre-human vegetation and to exploit the related benefits arising out of the valley’s proximity to significant existing conservation projects, including the Karori Sanctuary, Otari/Wilton Reserve and Tinakori Hill. 

The AVP’s objectives are as much about conservation as they are about aesthetics and quality of life for all valley inhabitants.
