We share a common vision to restore this place to its natural, tranquil beauty and restore the forest’s legendary dawn chorus.
These three groups are are drawn together in to their unique community partnership through the Pukaha Mount Bruce Board which was established in 2006.
In July 2013 the Pukaha Mount Bruce Board took over the operation of the Visitor Centre, Education programmes and retail activities from the Department of Conservation. In October 2015, it took over the operation of the captive breeding programme from the Department of Conservation too.
The Department of Conservation is contracted to undertake the forest restoration programme at Pukaha Mount Bruce on behalf of the Board with support from local and community volunteers and operates a captive breeding programme.
Pukaha Mount Bruce is supported by the Greater Wellington Regional Council and Horizons Regional Council through their ongoing predator control programmes on neighbouring properties.
