On the 12th and 13th of November, two well renown consultants came to Whangawehi to assess the work done and provide expertise and advice on how to better manage the protected ecosystems and increase their biodiversity. A report will follow but both were most impressed by the work done by the group. Guidance was given on water management in the wetlands in order to create more favourable habitats for wetland species. Water levels and diverse margins or ecotones are key to the success.
A big thank you to John Cheyne and Hans Rook for their help and support.
