58th Annual Ngā Whakataetae Mō Ngā Manu Kōrero Taku Manu Kākātarahae, Taku Manu Taiko,…
WSCW’s Kaitiaki roopu and Wastewise group in conjunction with the Albert-Eden Youth Board and Urban Ark – Manawa Taiao launched the Biodiversity project on Wednesday 30 March 2022.
The project began with a workshop on the importance of biodiversity restoration on the banks of the Waitītiko (Meola) Stream. The team learnt to identify native plants and invasive weeds as well as a discussion around predator tracking and trapping. The group pictured below mainly weeded out invasive weeds in order to free native plants around the stream.
