The Motutapu project started in 1993 in consultation with other interested groups. Together with Rangitoto, Motutapu represented an incredible opportunity for ecological restoration close to New Zealand's largest metropolitan center which could contribute significantly to threatened species’ survival in New Zealand.
The Trust works in an appreciated relationship with the island's Iwi, Ngai Tai ki Tamaki and with Department of Conservation.
