Reconnecting Northland is the first large-scale ecological restoration programme in Aotearoa - New Zealand, focusing on the wellbeing of our people and our land across Te Tai Tokerau.

Our Challenges

Reconnecting Northland was established in 2012 in response to a complex set of problems, born of a complex history and facing an uncertain future.
Challenges of distance, fragmentation, conflicting priorities, disaffection and disconnection, competitive funding models and the high cost of administration required a new approach.

Our Scope

The loss of biodiversity, the loss of swimmable waterways, the loss of forests and other wildlife habitats is in essence a loss of ourselves. Reconnecting Northland assumes the role of connector to elevate mauri, nature and thriving ecosystems.
In partnership we listen, reflect and focus on removing barriers to restore the wellbeing of our whenua and people at landscape scale.

Our Connected Solutions

Combining our independence and regional strategic focus we are well positioned to navigate amongst iwi, hapū, marae, community groups, landowners, agencies and others. We assist groups to overcome their unique challenges by identifying, enabling and facilitating the connections required to scale up Northland’s ecological effort.
Reconnecting Northland is positive and solution focused. We navigate complexity and identify ways forward.
We look forward to working with you.
