Wairarapa Pūkaha to Kawakawa Alliance is a diverse range of communities, groups and individuals working together to achieve a thriving native biodiversity, waterways to be proud of, and prosperous communities. We hope you will join us to achieve our vision.

The challenges that face us can be addressed only by working together. Local knowledge, leadership and ownership are essential to achieve and sustain the changes we need.

Our network is on a landscape scale. It connects rural and urban Wairarapa communities, mana whenua. It brings them together with government agencies, both local and national, to build a resilient and flourishing Wairarapa from Pūkaha (Mt. Bruce) to Kawakawa (Palliser Bay) and from the Tararua Range to the sea.
