Whakatipu Reforestation Trust







The Whakatipu Reforestation Trust's mission is to restore the native biodiveristy of the Whakatipu Basin through revegetation projects, education, collaboration & advocacy. Since 2015, WRT volunteers have grown and planted over 70,000 native trees and shrubs around the Whakatipu Basin. Their Feehly Hill planting site has been planted with over 4500 native plants since 2015.

  • Your main duties would be at newer sections where smaller shrubs and trees requires regular maintenance so the plants can grow large and strong enough to out-compete the weeds.
