Working for Puketi Forest Trust

We are currently funded by the DOC Mahi Mo Te Taiao Jobs for Nature funding to significantly increase our pest control work in the Puketi and Omahuta Forests. The grant is a fantastic way for us to be able to achieve our goals to restore this magnificent forest, whilst at the same time being able to provide employment and training in pest control. For us this is the perfect solution to making a sustained difference for both our forest and our community.

When you join our whanau as kaitiaki you are helping to restore the forest and all it’s inhabitants for future generations.
