Friends of Mana Island

The Friends of Mana Island Incorporated was formed in December 1998 to provide support for the Department of Conservation (DOC) in the restoration of Mana Island.

A restoration plan was prepared by DOC in 1999 and reviewed in 2010. .

The plan called for a 20 year planting program to restore the vegetation and habitat of the Island to a similar environment to that existing prior to human intervention on the Island. The re-forestation program called for the planting of some 500,00 trees over the period.

This has been achieved. The review provides a summary of progress since 1987 and recommendations and tasks into the future.
