Our goal is to bring our maunga and ngahere back to life, see kokakō and other key native species re-introduced to Mt Pirongia, and we're getting the community on board to help us make it happen.

Volunteers are the heart and soul of our organisation. We love meeting new people and getting out on the mountain to restore our natural environment. By controlling pests to create safe habitats we are helping native species to flourish.


"The maunga has a life of its own. The rivers and streams are its arteries, feeding the mountain's essence and purifying it. But it is humans who provide the being's consciousness, the centre of feeling and responsibility."


Tom Roa, Purekireki Marae
