Situated in the Hauraki Gulf Marine Park and linked by causeway to Rangitoto, Motutapu Island is New Zealand's best volunteering destination. Both islands were declared pest free sanctuaries in August 2011.

Volunteer work for The Motutapu Restoration Trust includes tree planting, weedbusting, nursery work and other volunteer activities. Only 30 minutes ferry ride from Auckland City, this project is the largest ecological restoration conservation endeavour in New Zealand.
