Haere mai! Welcome!

Welcome to the Rotokare Scenic Reserve Trust!

We are a community-led conservation-based charitable trust in the heart of Taranaki! As the kaitiaki of the beautiful Lake Rotokare and its environs, our primary focus is to achieve the highest level of restoration, protection, and enhancement of Rotokare's indigenous ecosystem. Our wetland and lowland forests are home to hundreds of native plants and threatened wildlife species including kiwi, hihi/stitchbird, tieke/saddleback, popokatea/whitehead, and toutouwai/North Island robins.

Join us on our journey to discover and protect our wildlife, recognise the special people involved in our efforts, celebrate our achievements, and share our vision for the future!
