Friends of Flora - Community helping Conservation

Our Mission

The objective of the society is to implement, in partnership with the Department of Conservation, a conservation strategy to bring about the protection and/or return of endangered and threatened flora and fauna to the Flora Stream catchment area in Kahurangi National Park. This will enhance the experience for all visitors to this popular area, resulting in wider community appreciation and use of the Park.

Introduced predators such as stoats and rats are destroying our native fauna. Without human intervention, our native bird population will continue to decline, and more wil be beome extinct. This is certainly true in the Flora.

Friends of Flora (FOF) is a community project founded in January 2001. Our native fauna is to be protected and preserved for future generations, and it is up to us all to see that it happens now.

"Friends of Flora and the Department of Conservation maintain a collaborative management partnership, sharing resources and expertise for the ongoing successful management of Flora Stream. The Department welcomes and supports the vision and initiative of the Friends of Flora group, and is committed to working with this group to achieve their principal aim of returning the Flora Stream to a place of birdsong."
