The fight to save the kororā and other taonga species in the moana at Pūtiki Bay is proving more costly than was anticipated.


The fight to save the kororā and other taonga species in the moana at Pūtiki Bay is proving more costly than was anticipated. Therefore we have had to set up this page to continue the much needed work to protect these species.

Currently our kaumātua have been paying theses expenses out of their own wallet without any contributions or assistance for any other organisations.

About us

The trust board has been mandated by the iwi since 2004 to represent Ngati Paoa.

Today we got it confirmed that the korora live in the breakwater and a much larger area than the developers have allowed for in their management plans and construction area.

Their resource consent has conditions relating to the korara that have not been fulfilled prior to construction commencing.

Makes it a different ball bame and we are now taking legal advise on our next steps.

Please note our givealittle page is set up to assist us with these legal fees in our quest to save the korora. Save the korara, Save the bay.

Environment Court Action  19 July 2021

Posted by: Ngati Paoa Trust Board

Today the Ngati Paoa Trust Board and supporters were back in the Environment Court questioning the developers inadequate korara management plan to try and gain a construction “ Stop Work ” order.

Ngati Paoa is seeking a construction “ Stop Work ” order to protect the korara from being exterminated by the actions of the developers around and in their natural habitat of Kennedy Point.

Ngati Paoa as an iwi has a genuine desire to preserve the peaceful cultural sanctuary that Kennedy Point is, and It’s very sad that the developers and Protect Putiki see Kennedy Point as a financial opportunity for different reasons.

For clarity Protect Putiki has not contributed financially towards the legal costs of Ngati Paoa, and the use of social media to self promote and receive donations is totally unacceptable to the Trust Board.

The Ngati Paoa Trust Board does not condone the deceitful financial opportunity being exploited for self interest while claiming to Protect Putiki.

The Ngati Paoa occupation is a peaceful protest on the beach, and the generosity, meals and support the community of Waiheke has given to our kaitiaki has been overwhelming and greatly appreciated.

We are beholding to and very humbled by the community of Waiheke Island and proud to stand alongside you.
