Taranaki people identify strongly with their distinctive landscape. The diversity of the mountain, rivers, streams, lakes, wetlands and the coast form the basis of the economy, as well as being the place that we turn to
for rest and recreation. There is an increasing interest in doing more to protect and restore the environment for future generations and to participate in environmental decision-making.
A key focus of Restore Taranaki is growing this groundswell of support so that sustainable environmental management and stewardship becomes the new normal where everyone is involved. In this way, an intergenerational commitment to restoring and preserving the region of Taranaki is guaranteed.
