Waima to Laingholm Pest Free

Our group is working towards making Waima to Laingholm pest free. Our initial efforts have been focused on possum control, with the intention to use this as a base to expand to control of other pests. The control area encompasses approximately 800 Hectares, with a 50/50 split between Public and Private land owners. With the Manukau Harbour to the south, the boundary (shown in yellow) runs from the edge of Symonds Bay on the west, along Exhibition Drive to the north, then back down Huia Road to Muddy Creek on the east.

Whenuapai Restoration Group

Community group that is undertaking clearing invasive weeds from public reserves and eventually private property. Also involved in pest eradication in our region. We have a rapidly growing residential community and in the future want to involve as many existing and new residents as possible in working towards a pest free New Zealand.

Makaracarpas

We are a growing group of Makara residents who work to improve the water quality, habitat value and visual amenity of Makara Beach, the Makara Estuary and the tributary streams of the Makara and Ohariu valleys. Our activities focus on riparian planting, fencing of waterways, trapping of pests, and holding work parties and community events.  We are always keen for more volunteers to please get in touch if you are interested!

Forest and Bird- Waitaki Branch

The Waitaki Branch of Forest and Bird has a number of active programmes including growing native plants, planting native plants at Fenwick Park and Cape Wanbrow, organising beach clean ups, organising field trips to local sites of interest and inviting guest speakers along to talk about the environment and conservation. We have around 80 members.

Starting the Change

New Zealand is crazy beautiful. There aren't many places in the world where you can view a beach and a volcano while on the motorway to work! I don't ever want to take New Zealand for granted, and I definitely don't want the generations below me to miss out on being able to go 10 minutes down the road and finding a magical bush wonderland or a glistening, SAFE, beach.

Kirikiripu Catchment Care

A community group led by locals who care about their harbour, its streams and wetlands, and the plants and animals that make these habitats their home. The group has a vision of connecting their harbour to its streams, wetlands and people, through restoring native biodiversity and creating access for walkers, cyclists and picnicers alike.
