The Whau River Catchment Trust

The Whau River Catchment Trust

WRCT is the principal environmental organisation for the Whau River catchment. As a charitable Trust, we rely on the generosity of donors.


The work of the The Whau River Catchment Trust (WRCT), along with WRCT's 'Friends of the Whau' (FOW) Volunteers can now be supported through Givealittle. So it is now possible for you personally to make a financial contribution, supporting the ongoing good work already underway helping to protect the Whau River, and for the continued restoration of native wildlife habitats within the Whau River catchment.

Money raised will go towards purchase of eco-sourced native plants, weed control, litter bins, and generally help with supporting volunteer restoration events for 2023-25. WRCT and our FOW Volunteers are working together for healthier streams and river through community participation and kaitiakitanga since the year 2000.

Join with the Whau River Catchment Trust and help make a difference.

Take time out, visit the river, and enjoy the many recreational opportunities it affords e.g. bird watching, kayaking, walking, cycling and fishing to name but a few things you can do or simply join in to improve the river and streams ecosystems by helping to plant and maintain thousands of native trees and shrubs.
