Project Crimson is one of New Zealand’s preeminent conservation charities, established to restore pohutukawa to New Zealand's forests and coastlines. Over 27 years that mandate has broadened to a national focus, to include rata, and more recently a wider ecosystem focus.

Not only have we have brought pohutukawa back from the brink of extinction, we have in total planted over 350,000 native trees and worked with thousands of New Zealanders to protect and renew our beloved native trees. Without Project Crimson some parts of New Zealand would have lost pohutukawa or rata altogether for future generations.

Usually a donation to Project Crimson would allow us to plant more native trees throughout New Zealand through our Crimson Trees, however we are currently focused on a response to myrtle rust, a fungus which is threatening pohutukawa trees. For now, all donations will support this appeal.

In 2015 we were recognised for our conservation work by winning a Green Ribbon Award, for protecting our biodiversity, at an awards ceremony at Parliament on 4 June.
