Karekare Beach


Together as a community of landowners, residents, volunteers, Iwi and organisations, we hope to protect the unique natural character and biodiversity of Karekare and its surrounding catchments.

Acknowledging the principles of Kaitiakitanga - guardianship and protection of the land, we believe in the ideal of only providing what nature needs to heal itself.

Through sufficient resourcing and provision of advice relating to biodiversity protection and biosecurity control, we aspire to encourage nature to return to a self-sustaining stable state.
