Kauri is under threat. We can all do our bit to help them, in fact, you may already be doing it! This summer, we invite you to show us your inner kauri hero. You can do this by uploading a photo or video on our page engaging with your family in an activity that’s worthy of a kauri hero or tell us what being a kauri hero means to you.

Some ideas for everyone in the family to get involved:

  • Make your own costume

  • Upload videos being a kauri hero (using a cleaning station, cleaning your shoes before a walk, staying on track at a reserve/bush walk, respecting signs)

  • Send a message or letter to kauri

  • Send a photo wearing your kauri hero t-shirt around Kaipātiki


Up for grabs: your own VIP private tree planting experience at a local reserve in Kaipātiki, photos, tree tag, GPS location so you can always check up on your tree!


1st Prize - XL native tree

2nd Prize - Large native tree

'People's choice' award - Medium native tree


Keep an eye out for future posts as we will have bonus entry options throughout the competition.
