The mission of the Camhannan Restoration Project is to restore the environment across 450 acres on 2 blocks of land to what it was before the devastation of burning, clearing, and grazing destroyed much of its pristine wilderness flora and eradicated the habitat of its native birdlife. 


The remains of the 7 native New Zealand ecosystems were still apparent on the 2 properties: Camp Hill, 15 Km north of Glenorchy, and Moonlight Bay on Endeavor Inlet off the Queen Charlotte Sound in the Marlborough Sounds. The environments we are restoring are an alpine highland, a beech and podocarp forest, a wetlands, several scrublands, a grassland, a braided river system, and a marine foreshore.


As of 2016, 35,000 trees, shrubs, grasses, and wetland species have been planted with a 97.5% survival rate.
