Mt Vic Revegers

To expand native vegetation in the Town Belt on Mt Victoria and to improve its biodiversity.

To re-introduce species natural to the podocarp/broadleaf forest of the wellington peninsular.

Te Kakano Aotearoa Trust

Te Kakano Aotearoa Trust is a community-based native plant nursery that specialises in propagating plants of local origin for native habitat restoration in the Upper Clutha Basin. We are a  not-for-profit charitable organisation registered with the NZ Charities, #CC23553 and work with local community groups, schools, organisations & businesses in the effort to promote hands-on community land care.

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.


Pukawa Wildlife Management Trust

The PWMT was set up to improve the birdlife in and around the Pukawa settlement on the southern shores of Lake Taupo. By controlling the animal pests such as rats, possums and mustelids known to be living in the forest and reserves surrounding Pukawa, it was hoped the birdlife would have a better chance of surviving and successfully breeding.
The PWMT has established a network of 350 box traps as well as rat cafes to dispense rat poison. It also uses Timms traps and the new Goodnature self setting traps targeting rats and possums.

Te Motu Kairangi - Miramar Ecological Restoration

The primary goal is to restore the peninsula to a more complete, healthy, living ecosystem, but also to reconnect local people with the natural environment, reintroduce lost flora and boost populations of locally rare or threatened species.

We aim to create a more extensive and diverse coastal forest and to extend this into gardens as well to attract a wider range of native birds and other fauna back to the peninsula.

Members specialist skills: horticulturist, weed management and revegetation consultant.

Horokiwi reserve

Horokiwi reserve is currently a large paddock with a spring fed gully starting in the Reserve.

The main issue our group has is the size of the project, but we are pacing ourselves and planting approximately 750 plants per year. There is still quite a lot of gorse, but since 2008 the regeneration has been fantastic, and despite the exposed hills the plants we have put in are slowly taking off.
