Nga Uruora – Kapiti Project Inc.

Nga Uruora is a not-for-profit voluntary organisation on the Kapiti Coast of New Zealand, focusing on the coastal escarpment between Pukerua Bay and Paekakariki and other conservation projects.

There is no waiting list, everybody is welcome, just bring a piece of fruit for a shared morning tea.
