On the 30th of March, Ian Tarei and Morgan Cox came to the Whangawehi meeting to talk about the Omataroa Kiwi Project based in Whakatane. Ian Tarei shared his story and key lessons learnt from his experience with the project.
The Whangawehi Catchment would be suitable for a Kiwi restoration programme because of its restored habitats and its pest control effort.
Ian and Morgan have sown a seed and gave quite a few tips on how their project became sustainable over time.
Thank you to both of them for their time and expertise.
