Mātauranga Māori


A key aim for the programme is to integrate Mātauranga Māori alongside western science in the fight against kauri dieback.

The use of cultural health indicators, to monitor and measure health, resilience and the disease status of kauri forest, as well as measuring the efficacy of rongoa or traditional Maori medicines to improve kauri health, are two major projects currently underway.
