The sun rises over or sets behind the Kaimai Mamaku forest and ranges. This constant and reassuring backdrop is a taonga. A treasured place.

It is a connector of two regions, multiple iwi, hapū, conservation and recreation groups, and livelihoods. When you take a glance, the forest looks fine. But if you look closer, this precious natural infrastructure is struggling.

We are a forum that brings together kaitiaki, agencies, stakeholders and interest groups to improve the health of the Kaimai Mamaku to provide for present and future generations.
