Motutapu - 'Sacred Island'

The island is experiencing an exciting, large scale and long term transformation. Our project is the largest ecological restoration endeavour in New Zealand. Motutapu is only 30 minutes by ferry from downtown Auckland, New Zealand's largest city and is linked by causeway to Rangitoto Island in the Hauraki Gulf Marine Park. Motutapu and Rangitoto are nowpest free islands - please, we need your help to keep it that way.

The Motutapu Restoration Trust is committed to restoring the natural and cultural landscapes of this beautitful and very special island
