The Motuora Restoration Society (MRS) is a voluntary community group set up to undertake the restoration of the island. It is an Incorporated Society and is recognized by the Charities Commission and the IRD as a Charitable Organisation. It has a membership of around 200 and is headed by an elected committee. Motuora is part of the Department of Conservation estate, and from 2004 until 2016 MRS was responsible for both the restoration project and the day-to-day running of the island. Currently MRS continues to manage the on-going restoration of Motuora. All expenses for these activities are borne by MRS. The Society maintains the nursery, funds weed control work (equipment and contractors) and seabird translocations (equipment and operating costs) on the island. The funding that enables this work comes from organizations that distribute funds for charitable purposes, from business sponsorship and from donations made by individuals.
