Te Whanau Moana me Te Rorohuri implemented a no-take rāhui covering 384 ha at Maitai Bay in 2017. The rahui was implemented due to concern about the ongoing degradation of the health/mauri of the area, which has been subject to heavy fishing pressure for the past several decades. Extensive kina barrens, associated with a loss of large predators on the reef, now cover much of the shallow rocky reef within the Maitai Bay. The rahui was implemented and is upheld directly by Te Whanau Moana me Te Rorohuri.


In 2019, Te Whanau Moana me Te Rorohuri and Mountains to Sea ran a Wānanga at Haititaimarangai Marae, Karikari Peninsula.
