The quarterly catch-ups, public events, email updates and feedback on funding opportunities have enabled us to connect with other conservation projects, expand our work in the region and create strong partnerships. At Wildlife.ai, we are proud to be a member of Wild for Taranaki and look forward to keeping on working together to facilitate environmental conservation in Taranaki.

Wild for Taranaki was pivotal in the establishment of He Hononga Taiao which successfully secured $9.98 million in Jobs For Nature funding of 12 projects. This is a game-changer for restoration projects in our region to have secure, year-on-year support. We are proud of how Wild for Taranaki has evolved, especially under the leadership of Andy, Danielle and the Board. We’re proud to walk alongside them – they also take a long-term view of restoration across the whole region.
