Our main work at the Waipoua Forest Trust is to regenerate previously cleared land that borders the Waipoua Forest. Our goal is to protect and restore this Kauri ecosystem at a landscape scale. The challenges of Kauri die-back disease introduced pest species & the onset of climate change makes our work more important than ever.
The trust is committed to restoring the natural balance of the forest ecosystem by replanting natives and controlling pest species, giving unique species in this area the opportunity to survive and flourish.
Would you like to volunteer and hear the birds singing? The Waipoua Forest is the largest Kauri forest in the world and a national and international treasure. We are seeking plant nursery assistants and planters to support us with our native plant work.
