Working together

The collaborative effort to address kauri dieback includes the Ministry for Primary Industries, the Department of ConservationAuckland CouncilNorthland Regional Council,   Waikato Regional CouncilBay of Plenty Regional Council and Tāngata Whenua. We are working together as one team to ensure the integrity of kauri ecosystems remains, to protect high value kauri areas and iconic kauri trees.

In May 2014 the Government announced an increase in funding to stop the spread of kauri dieback disease. The extra funding of $26.5 million is to be spent over the following four years on a number of initiatives, including upgrading and maintaining visitor facilities, researching potential surveillance and treatment methods, and engaging with communities around helping stop kauri dieback in their areas.
