Last day for our fundraising campaign

The Whangawehi Catchment Management Group (https://whangawehi.com/) needs your help with the restoration of the Whangawehi stream, on the beautiful Mahia Peninsula on the East Coast of the North Island of New Zeland. As you know, this Awa is vitally important to our community – culturally, physically and spiritually. Our vision is to improve water quality, restore biodiversity and engage with our local school to forge the next generation of Gardians / Kaitiaki. Our community has already come together and made fantastic progress with 4.5 km of fencing and 16 000 trees established last winter. Now we need your help for this winter’s planting programme. We are crowd funding for the plants for two restoration projects on two farms : Taharoa/Grandy Lake Forest and Pongaroa Station. Our campaign finishes today so we urgently need your support.

If you want to be part of our journey, check us out and donate at http://millionmetres.org.nz/donate/  We would also be grateful if you could share this email with anyone who you think could help.

Thank you

ファンガウェヒ集水管理グループ(https://whangawehi.com/)は、ニュージーランド北島の東海岸に位置する、美しいマヒア半島を流れるファンガウェヒ川を再生することを目的として結成した団体です。ファンガウェヒ川はこの地域社会にとって、文化的、物理的、そして精神的にとても重要です。私たちのビジョンは、その水質を改善し、生物多様性を取り戻し、地元の子供たちを保全活動に参加せることによって次世代の「ファンガウェヒ川の守護者(マオリ語ではカイティアキ、英語ではガーディアン)を育成することです。今日まで、すでに川沿いに4.5kmわたって柵をたて、昨年の冬には1万6千本の植樹を達成しました。このほか、グループは地域の2農場(タハロア・グランディーレイクフォレスト農場とポンガロア農場)におけるプロジェクトの資金援助もしています。
