The Kaimai Mamaku thrives; hence we thrive.

The Kaimai Mamaku is 300,000+ hectares, encompassing two regional councils, four district councils and more than 30 iwi and hapū.

While there are many stakeholders with an interest or responsibility in the area, our taonga don't see boundaries. To ensure they thrive, we need to work together.

Through this platform, we bring together all projects, agencies, iwi-hapū, stakeholders and communities with an interest in the ngahere and its catchments.


This website is run by Manaaki Kaimai Mamaku Trust, a co-governed charitable trust restoring the mauri of the Kaimai Mamaku.
