Roz Andersen, from the Ministry for the Environment, came to visit the project and check if we had made good use of MFE funding.
MFE substantially supports the project via the Te Mana o Te Wai and Community Environment Fund. The funds received so far have helped deliver an holistic programme including the delivery of our largest conservation campaign so far ie the construction of fences, the extension of reticulated water supplies for stock and the establishment of a large number of native trees. Roz was impressed by the work done and also got to better understand our challenges in a dynamic environment. She was happily surprised to discover our new shelter and flax collection around it.
The WCMG would like to thank the Ministry and Roz in particular for making the time to come, visit us and understand our challenges at ground level.
