Mahakirau Forest Estate Society Incorporated

Mahakirau Forest Estate comprises almost 600 hectares of native forest divided into 24 private properties. Each site is covenanted with the QEII National Trust who have described Mahakirau as “outstanding for its ecology and wildlife value with brown kiwi, kaka, Coromandel striped gecko, Hochstetter’s and Archey’s frogs all present”.

Sustainable Coastlines Charitable Trust

Sustainable Coastlines is a young, multi-award winning New Zealand charity run by a small team of hard-working staff and a network of passionate volunteers and interns. We love our coasts and we work with our sleeves rolled up to keep them beautiful. We coordinate and support large-scale coastal clean-up events, educational programs, public awareness campaigns and riparian planting projects. We also help groups run their own events. Through these efforts we motivate volunteers and communities around Aotearoa and the Pacific to look after the coastlines we all love.
