Kia ora, welcome to Friends of Mana Island


Mana Island is a predator-free island located off the coast of Porirua, New Zealand.

Friends of Mana Island (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 Ngāti Toa as tangata whenua. FOMI’s volunteers work on restoration projects on Mana Island.
