Hollyford Conservation Trust

Help us to bring back the birds and restore the bush in the Lower Hollyford Valley.


Inland from the coast at Martins Bay an unaltered dune and wet land system melds with an ancient mixed beech and podocarp forest.

This is the Lower Hollyford Valley, an area where Fiordland meets South Westland to mesh and form a ‘biodiversity hotspot’ unparalleled in New Zealand.

Wide spread predation by stoats, rats and possums threatened this ecology but the Hollyford Conservation Trust has established pest control measures designed to protect and restore native flora and fauna across a 2600 hectare project area.

We need your help to maintain and enhance our operations. Every dollar given will go directly towards protecting the Lower Hollyford through pest control and the monitoring of native species.


More about us

The Hollyford Conservation Trust operates a landscape-scale Ecological Restoration Project over 2600 hectares in Martin’s Bay, in the Lower Hollyford Valley, Fiordland, aiming to restore functioning native ecosystems through pest control and reintroduction of native species.
