Vision Statement 

1 August 2013

Volcano to Sea

Volcano to Sea is an urban community catchment restoration project by NZ Landcare Trust helping the local community to improve their environment. Based in Howick, Auckland this innovative three year project aims to capture the enthusiasm and energy of the local community, enabling them to make a positive contribution to their local environment. This catchment scale project will create an ecological corridor linking a dormant volcano called Pigeon Mountain/O Huiarangi with the sea via Wakaaranga Creek, Pakuranga Stream and the Tamaki River.

Wellington Regional Lizard Network

The Wellington Regional Lizard Network (WRLN) comprises conservation managers and lizard specialists from a variety of groups and organisations in the region who aim to identify priorities for lizard conservation throughout the Wellington region. The group promotes lizard conservation and provides advice and training to those involve in lizard conservation. The group's primary role is to advise but it will actively identify work that needs to be done, promote this work and train people to do it, and facilitate its implementation when possible.


Castlecliff Coast Care

With the support of the Community and the many stakeholders, Ted Frost (now deceased), coordinator Graham Pearson and Coast Care members have been busy working to restore the sand dunes ecology, provide stability to the dunes, and by education and demonstration, enhance the community’s recognition of the value of coastal dunes and their ecological fragility.
A testament to Ted’s foresight, the last six years has seen a huge increase in interest and involvement of many community groups.
