We have a vision to restore the biodiversity of the Okura Bush shoreline and surrounds.

Kauri dieback, invasive weeds and pest animals threaten this area.

Department of Conservation (DOC), Auckland Council (AC), neighbours and the community - all working together - are critical to the success of this project.
