Puke Kopipi Restoration Group
Puke Kopipi is an important landscape feature for the Ngunguru/ Tutukaka Coast Community. It sits behind the local Sports Complex and has a rough Walkway to the top with awesome views over Ngunguru Estuary and Sandspit to Bream Head, and to islands to the south.
Pines were removed in 2011 and a community restoration kaupapa begun to protect the natural, cultural and historic values. Volunteers are removing pest plants, restoring native plantings, arresting erosion and eventually bringing back the birds and creating an attractive walkway - a peaceful place to walk and observe, a place of wairua. Puke Kopipi is a positive wonderful project and we would not be able to achieve our goals of restoration without the support of our community and organisations.
