The Department of Conservation and the Waikato and Bay of Plenty regional councils formed a working party to cooperatively explore options for a joint planning and management approach for the Kaimai-Mamaku Ranges, in order to protect and enhance the significant catchment, conservation, and recreational values that this area provides.

The first step was to publish a comprehensive report on the environmental state of the Kaimai Range, including all stream catchments that flow from the Kaimai-Mamaku Ranges into Tauranga Harbour and the Waihou River, also encompassing the northern catchments of the Otanewainuku-Otawa Range that extend north-east from the Mamaku Plateau.
