The Tū Mai Taonga Project is proceeding under the leadership, guiding vision and tikanga of Ngāti Rehua Ngātiwai ki Aotea.
It has been developed iteratively through the mahi and engagement of many parties: first encouraged by the Aotea Conservation Park Advisory Committee and developed and promoted by the Aotea Great Barrier Environmental Trust with support from island sanctuaries and community groups, it is funded by Auckland Council and the Jobs for Nature - Mahi mō te Taiao programme, through Predator Free 2050 Limited and the Department of Conservation.
The project aims to protect and restore native species and ecosystems through feral cat removal and intensified rat control, initially in the Aotea Conservation Park and Northern Aotea area.
It plans to prove landscape-scale operational methodologies and build community support that open pathways to a predator free Aotea.
