The Cobb Mitigation Fund (CMF) was established by Cobb Power Ltd (since transferred to Trust Power) to protect and enhance the freshwater, wetland and riparian areas of Golden Bay. Environmental initiatives which benefit the Cobb and Takaka catchments (including Waikoropupu Springs) help mitigate some existing effects of the Cobb Power scheme.
Project Mohua manages the application process on behalf of the Tasman Environmental Trust (TET), the fund administrator. We welcome applications for funding from individuals, community groups and other organisations.
Some recent examples of projects we funded include:
