Kia ora and welcome to the website for Friends of Mana Island
Mana Island is a predator-free island located off the coast of Porirua, New Zealand.
Friends of Mana Island (or FOMI) is a volunteer group formed in 1998 to provide support for the Department of Conservation (DOC) in the restoration of Mana Island. We also work in collaboration with Ngati Toa as tangata whenua.
This has been postponed in light of the coronavirus situation.

These beautiful seabirds were translocated to Mana Island from Rekohu / Chatham Islands in February 2020. Our Facebook page has updates on their progress towards fledging.
