Mangawhai Harbour Restoration Society

Date started: 1994

Purpose of group: The Society works to protect and restore the Mangawhai sand spit and the harbour it shelters.

About the group: Mangawhai Harbour Restoration Society was formed after a large storm breached the spit to form a second entrance to the south of Mangawhai Harbour. The Society has been successful in establishing a nursery which has grown thousands of native spinifex and pingao plants. These have been planted on the spit by volunteers from the community and members of the society. The planting, fencing and rabbit control are part of a longer term programme which hopes to see the spit completely revegetated.
