We are restoring Lake Runanga back to its former health and fostering the return of locally extinct species back into the wetland and adjoining re-established bush. The overall lake level (350 ha.) has been restored to historic levels and now we are focusing our efforts on fencing off the lake from adjoining farmland, controlling willows within the wetland and re-establishing native forest around the lake as well as implementing long term predator control. 2.2km of fencing has already been done and 3000 plants planted. This winter will see a further 20,000 native plants planted.
