Dole’s support and investment in Motutapu Island for example, reflects the company’s commitment to conservation and sustainability in New Zealand.

Tucked away behind Auckland landmark, Rangitoto Island, Motutapu is one of the country’s largest volunteer ecological restoration projects.

The island’s 100 hectares of forest, planted by volunteers over the last twenty years, is home to growing populations of some of the country’s rarest species. 

The Motutapu Restoration Trust was established in 1994 as a way for the community and private sector to contribute to the restoration of Motutapu’s natural and cultural landscape.
