Please tell us and everyone else about your organisation and its purpose

The Brook Waimarama Sanctuary, established in 2004, is a community-based charitable trust that has established and maintains a predator-free sanctuary in Nelson, New Zealand.

Over 690 hectares of beech and secondary forest have been enclosed with a 14.4km predator-proof fence.

The sanctuary vision is to be New Zealand’s richest conservation environment for visitors, education and research.

It is now a place for people to reconnect with nature, engage with their natural heritage, share in its conservation, and undertake education, training and research.

We hope visitors will experience the mauri (life force), vital essence and spirituality of this natural environment.
