Aongatete Forest Project
This volunteer group manages 500 hectares of native forest in the Kaimai Mamaku Conservation Park, between Tauranga and Katikati.
The project was set up in 2006 by Tauranga Forest and Bird and the Katikati Rotary Club and is supported by local volunteers, landowners and Ngai Tamawhariua who have the Kaitiaki (guardianship) role over this forest.
The aim of the project is to restore the wildlife and plant life to a part of the Kaimai Mamaku Forest Park. It carries out extensive, ongoing pest control.
