Webinar | Kaipara Moana Remediation – A holistic, large-scale environmental restoration programme

EIANZ invites you to come and hear from Justine Daw, as the Pou Tātaki of the Kaipara Moana Remediation programme, Justine heads up a collaborative programme between the Crown, iwi and regional councils to restore the mauri (well-being) of the Kaipara, the largest natural harbour in the Southern hemisphere. The programme is one of the largest landscape-scale environmental initiatives in train at present globally, with an aim to plant 20-22 million trees over 10 years across a catchment that spans 6,000km2. While still in its early stages, the programme has an aspiration to model the way for effective and inclusive guardianship and restoration of natural resources in New Zealand.
