The Trust generates income to support the maintenance of the park and facilitation of our current education programmes. However we are reliant upon sourcing external funding to support the rehabilitation of the park.
We have been fortunate to receive an annual grant from our Settlor partner the Waimakariri District Council. Additionally, we have been supported for specific projects by Te Runanga o Ngāi Tahu, the CWMS Waimakariri Zone Committee, Vodafone Foundation, the World Wildlife Fund for Nature, Walking Access NZ, Te Ngāi Tūāhuriri Runanga, Landcare Research, Environment Canterbury and the Department of Conservation.
Te Kōhaka o Tūhaitara has a large group of volunteers supporting the work of the Trust. This includes trapping, planting, tutoring, actually pretty much anything that we do.
If you are interested in helping out, whether on a regular, casual or one off basis, follow us on our Friends of Tuhaitara Coaastal Park facebook page or contact the Trust GM
Te Kōhaka o Tūhaitara is a registered Charitable Trust. We welcome unconditional bequests and donations and are happy to discuss conditional donations.
