Nga Uruora is a not-for-profit voluntary organisation on the Kapiti Coast of New Zealand and our focus is to initiate conservation projects which wouldn't otherwise happen. Do you want to help?
By becoming a member, you will provide financial support for our conservation activities. If you just want to help with our work, become a volunteer. We always have work to do whether its trapping stoats, building tracks, collecting seeds, raising plants in our nurseries, or clearing weeds.
Planned working bees are now scheduled for 26 May, 22 June and 30 June. For details, go to the Activities page and put these in your diary. These will be led by Paul Callister and Ken Fraser who are both experts on this area and the history of Nga Uruora so come along, put some plants in the ground and learn about the restoration work being undertaken on the escarpment.

Come to this screening of Thin Ice, at Paekakariki, Sunday 19th May at St Peter's Hall at 7.00pm. Entry is free- Koha donation. This film is produced by climate research scientists at Victoria University and features international climate researchers telling their stories in their own words. It is a high quality documentary film which had over 200 simultaneously screenings worldwide on Earth Day (22 April 2013). Already the film has been acclaimed as a compelling piece of science communication and one that strips away the nonsense and fog of the climate change debate. It doesn’t tell you what individuals and communities should do in response to climate change but it does provide the unambiguous and factual context within which we can develop our individual and collective responses.
Read this update from our conservation neighbours up the coast - of particular interest is the upcoming Kohekohe Sunday which celebrates the flowering of the kokekohe - dysoxylum spectabile.
Read the May newsletter from the Friends of QE Regional Park Kapiti Trust and a very interesting article on cats and our wildlife.
