DEVELOPING INNOVATIVE STRATEGIES
We are incorporated as a Registered Charity. We are a charitable trust with four Trustees currently and one patron. The day-to-day operations of the Trust are managed by the trustees with assistance from a project coordinator and accountant. One trustee acts as secretary and there is an elected chair.
The Trust is supported by an Advisory Group and work with mana whenua, Aotearoa New Zealand and local government agencies, institutions, NGOs and community groups as appropriate.
Our aim is to support seabird conservation and research projects from East Cape and the west coast of the Waikato north to Three Kings and the Kermadec Islands.
Our focus is to:
(a) Promote the research and conservation of seabirds and the ecosystems they inhabit in Northern New Zealand
(b) Carry out and support seabird conservation, research and education projects
(c) Encourage, aid and assist restoration and seabird conservation
(d) Promote cultural and Maori values and kaitiakitanga.
