About this site

Established within Biosecurity New Zealand, Tiakina Kauri | Kauri Protection Agency invests in key kauri protection activities in partnership with mana whenua and collaborating agencies - the Department of Conservation (DOC) and regional councils across kauri lands (where kauri naturally grow - from Waikato to Te Tai Tokerau-Northland).

This website has been created to provide information about kauri protection, including:

  • research about kauri and the disease caused by the pathogen Phytophthora agathidicida (PA) - also known as kauri dieback;
  • the National Plan to protect kauri from disease, and;
  • resources and information to help visitors take action to protect kauri.

We'll provide you with the information you need to inform your kauri protection activities, and send you where you need to go for more information.
