The Long Bay - Okura Great Park Society was formed in 1996 to convince local, regional and central government to work together with us for the creation of a 1,000 acre Great Park at Long Bay in North Auckland. More about the society.
Okura estuary from the air and under water - showcasing the marine life, endangered birds, and stunning landscape and recreational values that are still under threat by development. Take a virtual walk through this special coastal forest, see it "like the godwit flies" , and hear visitors describe why they support our fight to keep greedy development away.

A few days ago we saw a fur seal frolicking at the mouth of the Okura Estuary! Sadly, it’s not good news for the plight of this lovely seal. Last week we shared the upsetting news that Todd Property Group will be going to the Environment Court to try to force through intensive development on the shores of the Estuary and the Long Bay Okura Marine Reserve.
In response, this week, the Long Bay Okura Great Park Society lodged an appeal against Todd Property’s development.
Now we really need your help to raise the funds for our Court costs. If you haven’t already, please assist us by making a donation to the Society’s Givealittle page Donate on Givealittle
We believe our expenses in the Environment Court will be in the range of $300,000. If all of our supporters put in $100 this would be an amazing contribution to these costs.
