Protecting and restoring Tīkapa Moana/the Hauraki Gulf

We're on a mission to improve the mauri, the life-giving essence of the Hauraki Gulf (Tīkapa Moana or Te Moana-nui-a-Toi). We're working with groups across the region to restore native bush along the banks of surrounding waterways. These native plants and trees help to trap sediment and other pollutants before they reach our precious moana.
