Something BIG is Stirring

Rewilding in 3 Steps

🌿 It ALL Starts With a Seed 🌿

We’re embarking on a mission to revive and regenerate native forests in New Zealand, and we need your support to make it happen.

Yes! It all starts with a seed, but it’s far more complex than it seems….

The Challenge

In the past, clearing land with chainsaws and fire sticks was common, but regenerating a forest is a monumental task.

Rewilding in 4 Steps


Rewilding is a progressive approach to conservation. It’s about letting nature take care of itself, enabling natural processes to shape land and sea, repair damaged ecosystems and restore degraded landscapes. Through rewilding, wildlife’s natural rhythms create wilder, more biodiverse habitats


It starts with a seed and out-of-the-paddock thinking.


Communities creating habitats for the animals to return.


Working towards a revitilised Aotearoa.

Seed Hunter Projects

Just wanted to let you know that I think it’s a brilliant concept and I am so happy you are making it happen, and how much I tautoko that! 

Best wishes, Eva

There’s a rustling in the autumn leaves. It has started, seeds are germinating, roots reaching out, the first young shoots are stretching skywards.

Good people are coming together.

Yes! We broke it.

Yes! We are all responsible and now the time has come to put it right.

The collective will is there but more importantly, exponentially more importantly, we’re doing something about it.

If Covid has shown us one thing it is that ‘success’ manifested into glass and concrete is neither sustainable or even important.  

Our visions align, our joy is found in the simple things. Fulfillment, tangible, soul-warming joy is found when the seas bloom, the forests return, the birds sing and the animals roam.

Seed Bombs

After many months of experimentation, we’ve developed incredible seed bombs that can outperform direct planting by up to 100% in some species.

Seed Hunter Adventure Day

A day filled with fun and learning as we visit schools across New Zealand. Students join us for an unforgettable adventure, where they’ll discover the art of harvesting seeds and crafting seed bombs for themselves.

Drone Sowing

Our reforestation efforts are powered by state-of-the-art heavy-duty drones that have been designed with efficiency and affordability in mind.

The Seed Hunter Tribe

These wonderful projects all require seed, and lots of it. We need genetically strong, locally sourced seeds, and that’s where the Tribe comes in.

What an incredible Seed Hunter Day at Tasman School! 🌳

🌱 The students learned all about New Zealand’s native plants and animals, collected seeds, and made seed bombs to help rewild our beautiful country.

But the real highlight?

When we introduced mud into the mix! 💥 The afternoon turned into a delightful, mud-filled adventure with the kids giggling, squealing, and frolicking in pure joy.

Seeing their beaming faces and enthusiasm for nature was truly inspiring. The Seed Hunter Days are the perfect way to engage youth and instill a love for the environment. This memorable day proved that getting a little muddy is a small price to pay for nurturing the next generation of environmental stewards! 🌿

Whenu iti Seed Hunters

The Tasman Mission event was a huge hit, with the kids going wild over The Seed Hunter Tribe’s seed bomb station! While tackling fun eco-challenges like bike repairs and orienteering, the undisputed favorite was getting messy making seed bombs. The tribe’s hands-on approach had the kids squealing with delight as they molded mud and seeds, their joyful faces showing the magic of connecting with nature. Environmental education has never been so engaging!

The Seed Hunter Tribe Trust

Mission Statement

The Seed Hunter Charitable Trust is dedicated to promoting biodiversity, native reforestation, and the conservation of native plant species and environments. Our mission involves educating and engaging with communities, schools, and partner organizations to foster a deeper understanding of native ecosystems and the importance of seed harvesting and propagation.

Through initiatives such as Seed Hunter Days and educational field trips, we empower participants to learn about natives, seed harvesting, and sowing/propagation techniques. Additionally, we explore innovative approaches to large-scale rewilding, including the use of seed bombs and drones. Our commitment to sustainability and environmental stewardship guides our efforts to support the flourishing of New Zealand’s natural landscapes.

We couldn’t do it without you!
