Forest

Aongatete Forest Project

This volunteer group manages 500 hectares of native forest in the Kaimai Mamaku Conservation Park, between Tauranga and Katikati.

The project was set up in 2006 by Tauranga Forest and Bird and the Katikati Rotary Club and is supported by local volunteers, landowners and Ngai Tamawhariua who have the Kaitiaki (guardianship) role over this forest.

The aim of the project is to restore the wildlife and plant life to a part of the Kaimai Mamaku Forest Park. It carries out extensive, ongoing pest control.

Cape to City

Launched in 2015, Cape to City's vision is to transform the landscapes of our region so that 'Native species thrive where we live, work and play'.

Cape to City is located in Te Matau a Māui/Hawke’s Bay on the east coast of New Zealand's North Island. We're one of the first projects in the country to scale up biodiversity restoration and predator control.

Parikawau Restoration Group

The group plants areas that were grass or weeds with plants raised from eco-sourced seed by another volunteer group (Friends of the Waikanae River). We weed the areas we have planted and also earlier plantings and we weed areas of existing bush. We also remove seedlings and saplings of weed trees species including species not native to the local area.

Routeburn Dart Wildlife Trust

Our vision is to bring back the birdsong to the Routeburn and Dart Valleys by creating an inland sanctuary in them. We aim to establish opportunities for business and the public to contribute to funding and implementing biodiversity gains and appreciation in these valleys. We currently focus on the yellowed (mohua), rock wren (piwauwau) and are exploring options for blue duck (whio), kiwi and kaka.
