Welcome to the website of Bay Conservation Alliance, an Incorporated Society and registered charity that includes four established community conservation groups, themselves registered charities in the Bay of Plenty, New Zealand. Bay Conservation Alliance will support and help to expand the existing work of its members and seek to develop new, larger, landscape scale conservation projects.

The immediate goal is the creation of an organisation that can assist largely volunteer-run ecological restoration/conservation community groups by providing a professional support team tasked with ‘taking the load’ off volunteers so that they can get on with practical field work.

Bay Conservation Alliance was formed in 2016 and is presently raising funds to support their goal. In 2017 they plan to appoint a salaried CEO to help develop the organisation. As capacity and expertise grows, additional membership will become available.
