The Hauraki Gulf Forum

The Hauraki Gulf Forum is a statutory board that advocates for the protection and restoration of the Hauraki Gulf / Tīkapa Moana / Te Moananui-ā-Toi.

The Forum has representation on behalf of the tangata whenua of the Hauraki Gulf and its islands, the Ministers of Conservation, Fisheries and Māori Development, and elected representatives from Auckland Council (including Aotea Great Barrier Island and Waiheke Island Local Boards), Waikato Regional Council, and the Waikato, Hauraki, Thames-Coromandel and Matamata-Piako District Councils.
