Connecting Taranaki

We’ve created this map to highlight what’s going on, and where, with our member groups. Most are based within Taranaki working on environmental projects such as replanting, trapping and reintroducing species or supporting biodiversity efforts as part of what they do. Some are national or research-focused organisations, connecting with us on shared areas of interest.
