Aroha Island Charitable Trust

The purpose of the Aroha Island Charitable Trust is to preserve and enhance the Open Space covenant values of Aroha Island particularly the aesthetic, cultural, ecological, scientific, educational and social values and retain public access for present and future generations.
The objects for which the Trust is established:

Island Bay Coast Care

The Island Bay Coast Care group was set up in 2003 by a group of passionate and dedicated local residents who have been working together with the wider community to restore native plants to a small and degraded, but important dune remnant at Island Bay beach. The dune is noted on a national dune register for its Pingao.

Pourewa Restoration Group

The Pourewa Restoration Group was set up by a small group of locals to restore an important area of bush in the heart of Auckland city.

We have a vision of the Pourewa valley being an oasis of native bush in the heart of an ever expanding Auckland City. A place where the community can walk through, be surrounded by native bush and feel a world away from the stresses of city living.

Motutapu Restoration Trust

30 mins by ferry from downtown Auckland, Motutapu Island is one of the jewels in the Inner Hauraki Gulf. Farmed since the 1860's most of the original vegetation was stripped for pasture leaving only remnant pockets of  native species along the coastline and in deep valleys.

West Coast Penguin Trust

The West Coast Penguin Trust is a charitable trust formed in 2006 by local residents concerned at the decline in blue penguin populations. Its aim is to conserve the West Coast blue penguins, Fiordland crested penguins, Westland petrels and other threatened seabirds, and their habitat.
