The Awana Catchment Trust aims to protect threatened wildlife species and their habitats in the Awana Catchment on Great Barrier Island in Auckland's Hauraki Gulf.
ACT realises it is vital to preserve the Awana catchment's unique environment and its historial and cultural heritage for islanders, visitors and future generations.
Awana - on Great Barrier's remote east coast - is home to many rare and beautiful native birds, plants and marine life including the worldwide endangered brown teal waterfowl, the New Zealand dotterel and the variable oyster catcher.
The catchment includes 1500 breath-taking hectares of regenerating kauri forest, valley, alluvial flats and wetlands, and a coastal margin made up of sand dunes, rocky bays and sea cliffs.
