CUE Haven

CUE Haven is a project to restore a 59 acre former dairy farm to create a sustainable forest ecosystem by restoring connectivity between the forest remnants and rehabilitating wetlands. Benefits include enhancing biodiversity and wildlife values, and providing headwater protection of the stream tributary that discharges into the Kaipara harbour.

Centennial Park Bush Society

Centennial Park Bush Society is an incorporated society in Campbells Bay, North Shore, NZ. Our focus is on Centennial Park, a 70 Ha reserve in the heart of Campbells Bay. We work weekly on this reserve to control pest plants, plant native trees, control pest animals and maintain tracks. We are also focussed on the entire catchment via a project named the Campbells Bay Urban Sanctuary

 

Moehau Environment Group

Moehau Environment Group is a volunteer organization which has achieved 11 years of coordinated intensive predator control, with habitat restoration projects covering over 13,000 hectares, primarily on private land.

This has allowed for the recovery of many endangered species in the Northern Coromandel including dramatic turnarounds for kiwi, fern birds, Bittern, Kaka and Spotless crake. Our hard work has allowed for the successful reintroduction of the North Island Robin and Pateke (Brown Teal), with both species now successfully breeding in the area.

South Wairarapa Biodiversity Group

The South Wairarapa Biodiversity Group was formed in October 2011. It is a rural community-led initiative and was the original brainchild of two Pirinoa Farmers.
The group's vision and goals are:
- To improve water quality and biodiversity through wetland restoration projects.
- To raise the level of awareness in the community of positive environmental management and its benefits.
- To improve farming practices through support and education.
- To promote restorative projects around Lake Onoke.

Talbot Forest Working Group

Talbot Forest Working Group was formed out of concern over the health of Talbot Forest Scenic Reserve
The objectives of TFWG are:
The provision of information that will contribute to the well being of the forest and environs.
The protection and enhancement of existing native vegetation remnants.
Working towards establishing appropriate linkages to Talbot Forest, to provide wildlife corridors.

 

Home Creek, Manapouri

Home Creek Restoration Project started about 15 years ago. It was pasture along one of the few meandering creeks that still exist in Southland. The first few years, we lost most of the plants because I misunderstood the environment, which is much harsher than I thought. But, I have now learned a lot, and every plant now lives.

 

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. The island's geological origins are Jurassic being approximately 165 million years old and it is joined by causeway to Rangitoto a mere 600 year old volcano consisting of lava fields.

Nga Manu Nature Reserve

Nga Manu Trust administers Nga Manu Nature Reserve which in turn preserves the largest remnant of Coastal Lowland Swamp Forest left on the Kapiti Coast. The trust promotes conservation education, research and involvement in recovery programs for our native flora and fauna.
