The Trust is established to protect and develop Whareroa Farm Reserve as a reserve for environmental and heritage conservation and public enjoyment, by working with the Management Authority to:
a) maintain Whareroa Farm Reserve as a publicly-owned and sustainable coastal hill country farm as meets the overall aims of the Trust
b) restore the catchments of the Whareroa Stream and protect and enhance the indigenous flora and fauna;
c) recognise and respect the bond that tangata whenua have with the land;
Queen Elizabeth Park (638ha) is a public regional park for which the Friends of QEP have a very clear vision: "Our vision is Queen Elizabeth Park as a sand country landscape with natural, historic and cultural features that all can enjoy". We mean to achieve this vision by recognising the park as irreplaceable public land and honouring Te Tiriti o Waitangi together with links to those with mana whenua and kaitiakitanga.
