The Kaharoa Kokako Trust is a community group dedicated to protecting the kokako that live in the Kaharoa Conservation Area, near Rotorua.

By reducing the number of possums and rats in the forest, the Trust has enabled kokako numbers to grow.

As a result of the Trust's voluntary activities, Kaharoa is now home to one of the largest and most significant kokako populations in New Zealand.
