Wairarapa Moana Community Restoration

The project is known as Reconnecting the Community and Donalds Creek to Lake Wairarapa. The project is focused on restoring a wetland on Donalds Creek to the north of Featherston (Harrison St Wetland) and native plants along the shoreline of Lake Wairarapa at Lake Domain as a way to enhance the health of Wairarapa Moana, to connect the townspeople to its catchment, to enhance environmental awareness, to build community, and to create worthwhile experiences and opportunities for our youth.

BRaid - Braided River Aid

Functioning as an umbrella group, BRaid works to protect, enhance and restore braided river ecosystems through co-operation and partnerships with iwi, individuals, schools, community groups, commercial and recreational stakeholders, and with government departments responsible for river management including local and regional councils, the Department of Conservation and Land Information NZ. Our initial focus is on the indigenous bird species that breed on the riverbed.

Million Metres Streams Project

Million Metres Streams Project (Million Metres) is a project of the Sustainable Business Network (SBN). It is a partnership with the Department of Conservation. Its mission is to assist the planting of one million metres of New Zealand waterway with native plants and trees.

We help landowners and local groups set up and run crowdfunding campaigns for their riparian planting projects. Suitable projects are showcased on the Million Metres crowdfunding website. People learn about these projects and donate to them. We also promote the projects through media and on social media.

Routeburn Dart Wildlife Trust

Our vision is to bring back the birdsong to the Routeburn and Dart Valleys by creating an inland sanctuary in them. We aim to establish opportunities for business and the public to contribute to funding and implementing biodiversity gains and appreciation in these valleys. We currently focus on the yellowed (mohua), rock wren (piwauwau) and are exploring options for blue duck (whio), kiwi and kaka.
