Sustainability Conservation Endangered

In 1990 parts of New Zealand were on the brink of losing pohutukawa trees forever. The Project Crimson Trust was established to fight for their survival and since then we have made impressive progress re-establishing pohutukawa and rata nationwide.

Whilst pohutukawa and northern and southern rata are no longer threatened species their protection and continued renewal is still vital. Enormous work remains to be done to restore the Bartlett's Rata species, with very few adult trees known to be in survival.

Project Crimson works with organisations, communities and individuals throughout New Zealand providing funding and ecologically-sourced trees for local projects. We also deliver environmental education programmes to schools through our Treemendous programme.

In 2015 we were recognised for our conservation work by winning a Green Ribbon Award, for protecting our biodiversity, at an awards ceremony at Parliament on 4 June.
