The Project is a registered charitable trust (Aongatete Forest Restoration Trust), operating in partnership with Forest & Bird (Tauranga branch). We have several key stakeholders, including the Department of Conservation, and activities are overseen by a board of trustees. In late 2017, thanks to the generous support of TECT and the BOP Regional Council, we secured funding to enable the employment of a part-time Operations Manager.
