ONE BILLION TREES FOR NZ
SEVENTY THOUSAND FOR THE WAIMEA INLET
It was raining on Wednesday 3 July but that didn’t dampen the celebrations as Minister for Forestry Shane Jones announced his support for a significant planting project based around the Waimea Inlet.
Tasman Environmental Trust (TET) applied to the One Billion Trees fund for support to plant over 70,000 native trees on freshwater, island and estuary margin sites around the Waimea Inlet over the coming 3 years.
The motivation and momentum within the community to restore the native habitat values of the Waimea Inlet has grown considerably over recent years. There are many individuals, groups and organisations leading and delivering restoration projects, from private landowners, councils, and conservation entities like TET, who support large landscape projects e.g. Battle for the Banded Rail.
This programme is about developing a “whole of estuary“ approach that enables these projects to connect and scale up the restoration of the Waimea Inlet. TET looks forward to working with all sectors of the community on this programme, including whanau, hapu and iwi.
The announcement was well attended despite the rain and both Agriculture Minister and West Coast-Tasman MP Damien O'Connor, and Forestry Minister Shane Jones planted trees at the Hoddy Estuary Park site.
How to Measure Success?
TET has been working with Pene Greet and David Bartle on improving our evaluation and monitoring of the conservation work we do. This work has helped to clarify the conservation outcomes we want to achieve and provided us with the tools to measure and report our success.
