Our Story

The Guardians of Kapiti Marine Reserve trust (GoKMR) is a registered charitable trust (CC54807). 

GoKMR was officially registered on the 17th of September 2017 following a well-attended public meeting that was held in August 2016 to provide the local community with an opportunity to discuss their concerns regarding the management of Kāpiti marine reserve. 

The trust’s purpose is to advance and promote the conservation and protection of the Kāpiti Marine Reserve and surrounding marine environment for the benefit of the local community now and for future generations
