Friends of Taupo Swamp & Catchment Inc

Formed in 2018 by a group of Porirua residents, Friends of Taupo Swamp and Catchment is a not for profit Incorporated Society which is also a registered Charity (Number CC56756). FOTSC has grown out of concern for the protection and enhancement of the Taupo Swamp and catchment and its functioning and vibrant ecosystems. We are a community led group of volunteers.

Project Tongariro

Project Tongariro's mission is; Inspiring New Zealanders and international visitors to connect physically, emotionally and spiritually with Tongariro National Park and its surrounds. We aim to harness and connect like-minded people, work together to improve our place, create opportunities for others and share our knowledge and experience in conservation.

Wanaka Backyard Trapping

Based in Wanaka, we are a group that helps community teams to trap predators in the Upper Clutha urban and peri-urban areas, whether on public or private land. We also seek to educate and raise the profile of New Zealand's unique wildlife, amongst our locals and visitors to the area.


STEPS’ major objective is to protect and enhance Waitītiko Meola Creek, Roy Clements Treeway, local reserves, and the underlying aquifer. Our main activities include restoration planting, weeding, water quality monitoring and water quality advocacy. If you would like to join or support STEPS please contact us.
