The Puketi Forest Endowment Fund has been set up under the umbrella of Northland Foundation, for the maintenance and restoration of Puketi Forest.
Puketi Forest Trust, through its project ‘Oh Mai Puketi’ (Awaken Puketi), is working to restore and protect Puketi Forest, an ancient kauri forest located near Kerikeri. The Forest contains magnificent stands of kauri, podocarp and hardwood trees and a rich ecological diversity including 370 recorded species of plants, some of which are found nowhere else in the world. A comprehensive trapping network for pest control has been established over 5,500 hectares and significant progress has already been made to improve the health of the forest. This has enabled the return of abundant birdlife and re-introduction of North Island Robin and Kokako. Further re-introductions are planned.
