The Rod Donald Banks Peninsula Trust has a bold vision to facilitate the restoration of Banks Peninsula to its traditional status as Te Pātaka o Rākaihautū – the storehouse that nourishes.
In our vision Banks Peninsula has a rich biodiversity, planted streams, lakes and seas flowing with clean water. The local people are prospering and passionately participate in conservation. The Peninsula is known as an ecological island and a place for appreciative recreation, with low impact activities such as walking, cycling and affordable camping fostered to encourage learning about and respect for the environment.
We aim to achieve this vision through partnership with Peninsula communities, linking people and groups together and supporting their efforts and projects.
