How can I get involved?

There are different ways you can help us build a better future – become a volunteer or a supporter.
Find the one that suits you the best.

Become a Volunteer

You are currently living around Whitianga, have some free time on your hands and are keen to get involved. Contact us to give us your details and we will add you to our volunteer list. We will get in touch with you a few days in advance to let you know what is coming up. This volunteer work isn’t regular and is more likely from autumn to early spring.


Regular help in our Native Plant Nursery – Planting, pricking out, potting up, weeding, watering, fertilising and general plant care.

Beachcare Group

A regular group which we co ordinate for Coastcare – We spend 2 hours each Friday morning helping look after the dune areas and reserves along the length of Buffalo Beach.

Predator Trapping

We are looking for people to manage or help service predator traps around the Whitianga area.

Wilding Pine Eradication

We have an exciting project ahead that will require volunteers to help control young wilding pines on an ongoing basis.

Track Building & Maintenance

New Zealand’s ecosystems are truly unique, they evolved over millions of years in isolation from the outside world.  Since the arrival of man, so much has changed. I don’t think many people realise just how special the New Zealand environment is, and just how much work is required to protect it for future generations.

If we enjoy our environment we will value it. If we value it we will care for it. If we care for it, it will reward us. Our environment is our life!
