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.

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.

- 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.

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.
