Restore Taranaki rests on a strong foundation of existing initiatives and a commitment to work together through Wild for Taranaki.

Wild for Taranaki has a strong and growing membership and friend base, bringing together agencies, iwi, research providers, support services, primary sector and community groups, all working towards the common goal of restoring the Taranaki environment.
