Freshwater wetlands

Parikawau Restoration Group

The group plants areas that were grass or weeds with plants raised from eco-sourced seed by another volunteer group (Friends of the Waikanae River). We weed the areas we have planted and also earlier plantings and we weed areas of existing bush. We also remove seedlings and saplings of weed trees species including species not native to the local area.

Mount Tutu Eco-Sanctuary

Mount Tutu Eco-Sanctuary in Bay of Plenty, North Island, New Zealand, between Tauranga and Rotorua, is a Mainland Island Sanctuary, protected by the Queen Elizabeth II National Trust Act 1977 since 1993. The sanctuary exists to protect and educate on New Zealand's natural flora and fauna, with conservation programmes to mitigate the effects of introduced predators on New Zealand's native wildlife. The indigenous wildlife at the sanctuary include bellbird, tui, kereru (wood pigeon), piwakawaka (fantail), ruru (morepork, native owl), pukeko (swamp hen), shining cuckoo (migratory) etc.

Te Nohoaka o Tukiauau / Sinclair Wetlands

Our future vision is that Te Nohoaka o Tukiauau is a restored wetland ecosystem that is ecologically diverse and nationally known for sustainable practices, community involvement and as an important Ngāi Tahu mahinga kai. We are committed to careful and thoughtful stewardship/kaitiakitanga of the important environment entrusted to us, and will work actively to ensure that it is enhanced for future generations to use and enjoy.

Grandview Community Garden Trust

Grandview Community Garden is a community garden where people from many different cultures work alongside each other, growing their own fresh produce and learning new skills. New members, visitors and volunteers are welcome. In in 2013 we began restoring an area of neglected waste land with a focus on Nga Rongoa. The aim is to provide inspiration to members of the community including the local refugee/migrant community, Western Community Centre and schools.
