Te Runanga O Ngaati Ruanui Trust

Te Runanga O Ngaati Ruanui Trust are a very supportive Project Partner and have thrown their weight behind the innovative South Taranaki Reef Life project, supporting the aim of shedding light on the marine diversity off the South Taranaki coast.

Their rohe extends from the Waingongoro river in the North to the Whenuakuru river in the South which includes the ocean in which our Reef Life Project is included.   

Te Kaahui o Rauru

Te Kaahui o Rauru have a spiritual and physical connection with their marine whanau.  ‘We are one’.   Their rohe extends from the Patea river in the North to the Wanganui river in the South.


The Project Reef is located off Patea, so founding and growing a strong relationship with Te Kaahui o Rauru is of great importance.

Te Kaahui o Rauru have a strong interest and commitment to the kaupapa (principles and ideas which act as a base or foundation for action) of the South Taranaki Reef Life Project, and appreciate sharing the underwater videos and photographs of the Reef Project.  The resources are being used in their school curriculum.   The Reef Project provides inspiration, encouragement and support to future generations of Kaitiaki. The Kaiwhakahaere (CEO) of Te Kaahui o Rauru, Anne-Marie Broughton nominated the Reef Project for the Green Ribbon Awards, and (along with two other members of the Iwi) supported the Project Joint Leads at the awards ceremony in Parliament on the 8th June 2017.
