The Trust has a 100% volunteer workforce including it’s Board of Trustees. Advising us are the Department of Conservation (DOC) and Environment Southland. Our projects are funded through grants, donations and fundraising events. BHMET is a registered charitable trust.
Bluff Hill is of cultural, recreational and ecological importance and is truly one of the last populated places in New Zealand where the forest meets the sea. "Amazingly, a remnant of the original forest cover has survived. On the Glory Track you can touch trees that were growing before the first sealers set eyes on ‘Old Man’s Bluff’.....Today, we recognise the value of the reserve as a refuge for New Zealand’s special plants and animals, and as a place we can go to appreciate an environment that is unique to New Zealand" (from the DOC Supersite for Education pamphlet on the Bluff Hill/Motupohue Scenic Reserve).

More about us
Bluff Hill Motupohue Environment Trust (BHMET), established in 2008, is dedicated to the restoration and protection of the natural environment on and around Bluff Hill. We do this through pest control, revegetation, and raising public awareness. In the future we will include the translocation of native species in our restoration efforts.
