The Forest Bridge Trust’s purpose is through practical landowner-centred support, enable the protection, enhancement and connection of forest remnants, wetlands and other landscapes to provide a safe habitat for indigenous wildlife. 

Until 2025, their focus is on working to achieve a predator controlled corridor of land, the Central Bridge.  This is an area of 54,000 hectares connecting the existing wildlife sanctuaries at Mataia Restoration Project in the west to Tawharanui Regional Park in the east.

The group’s roots are in rural Rodney. Being local, they understand the realities of living on the land and strive to connect the best information, people and services to communities so that people can make the right decisions for their land or area.

The Forest Bridge Trust website has lots of information about predator control and fencing services, plus lots of news and free resources to support conservation.
