About us

​By 2045, the Aorangi Restoration Trust aims to have restored the Aorangi Forest and its surrounds to the state where:

    • the indigenous forest, coastal, and marine ecosystems are healthy,
    • its streams, rivers, and wetlands are clean and abundantly inhabited,
    • there are ecosystem services that benefit the rural and urban economies of South Wairarapa and offer places for recreation for the wider Wellington region.
