The Whareora Landcare Group works to protect and care for the native forests and streams of our area. Our project area covers approximately 1500ha, stretching the northern end of Abbey Caves Road, along Whareora Road and up to the top of Mt Tiger Road.
Our goals are:
- To restore the health and biodiversity of the native forests of the Abbey Caves/Whareora/Mt Tiger area;
- To reduce levels of animal and plant pests in our forests and create safe havens for native wildlife;
- To protect the existing significant biodiversity of the area, including a number of threatened species;
- To encourage the return of lost species such as kiwi, kaka, kakariki and bellbird, some of which currently visit the area but do not breed here.
