The aims of the Kotuku Peninsula Charitable Trust (KPCT) are to:
- Restore, enhance and protect the biological diversity of flora and fauna on the Kotuku Peninsula.
- Facilitate the protection and restoration of the ecological integrity of the Kotuku Peninsula such that native biodiversity flourishes.
- Provide an environment that supports experiential education, interpretation and advocacy.
- Ensure the sanctuary is an exemplar of best practice adaptive ecological management that benefits the local, island and national environment.
These aims will be achieved by:
- Considering the contiguous nature of the area from ridge-top to sea (vertically and horizontally) in any restoration plan.
- Securing funding for personnel who will coordinate and facilitate ongoing sanctuary operations.
- Supporting the planning and implementation of restoration work by the landowners.
- Liaising with other organisations to ensure industry best-practice and research.
- Involving the community in projects.
- Providing interpretative and educational opportunities.
- Facilitating public access within Kotuku Sanctuary and supporting the development of tracks.
- Promoting and publicising achievements to both general and scientific communities.
