Raukūmara Pae Maunga is a large-scale restoration project that aims to significantly reduce possums, rats, stoats, deer and goat from a 90,000-hectare territory of Public Conservation Land spanning the northern to central Raukūmara ranges.  Additional to this area there is also the possibility of working with privately owned lands.  Raukūmara Pae Maunga is a restoration project between Ngati Porou, Te Whānau-ā-Apanui and in partnership with Te Papa Atawhai (Department of Conservation).
