Welcome to the website for Friends of Mana Island
Mana Island is a predator-free island located off the coast of Porirua, New Zealand.
Friends of Mana Island (or FOMI) is a volunteer group formed in 1998 to provide support for the Department of Conservation (DOC) in the restoration of Mana Island. We also work in collaboration with Ngati Toa as tangata whenua.
