Reconnecting Northland is a connectivity conservation programme. Put simply, we acknowledge that nature is better when connected; recognising habitats and species function best as part of a large, interconnected network that also sustains the livelihoods of people.
Our programme and vision are focused on intergenerational ecological impact and delivering sustainable change across the four wellbeings; social, cultural, economic, and environmental.
A non-profit organisation established in 2012, Reconnecting Northland is dedicated to the advancement and development of Northland environmental restoration, for the benefit and wellbeing of Northland people and communities.
Currently we employ a dynamic team of five employees based in Whangarei, New Zealand; supported by a professional, diverse, and experienced Board of Trustees.
We are a small team with a big vision for Northland. We invite your support on this journey as we strive to overcome barriers and focus solutions to achieve real and lasting change.
