The Team

Predator Free Rakiura Group

The Predator Free Rakiura Group is a non-profit alliance of a diverse collaboration of iwi, government, business, organisations and community representatives. The Group was formed in 2014 and leads the Project. The breadth of the Group is its strength. 

 

With people of many different backgrounds, perspectives and ideas, working together to lead the project, our planning will be stronger and more representative of the people involved and affected.

No one entity is responsible, only together will a Predator Free Rakiura be possible.
