This project aims to increase the propagation of the endangered Kākābeak/Ngutukākā through the development of a regional urban seed bank to encourage urban dwellers to plant Ngutukākā in their backyards.

Ngutukākā is seriously threatened with extinction in the wild. Its conservation status is Nationally Critical. Only about 150 plants are known in the wild.
