Love our wetlands together on Waiheke

Location: Waiheke Island
Availability: Weekdays
Team size: 5 - 40

Description:

Waiheke Resources Trust (WRT) is all about creating a great place to live, and undertakes programmes that encourage community development and ecological sustainability on Waiheke Island. Through its Love Our Wetlands project, WRT is working to restore seven significant wetland areas on Waiheke — Matiatia wetland, Owhanake, Te Huruhi Bay awa, Okahuiti, Rangihoua and Te Matuku — each of which has unique historical, cultural, ecological and environmental value. LOWW takes a ‘whole of landscape’ ecological approach to restoring wetlands. Through this mahi, we are creating vibrant habitats where our native species can thrive and communities are connected.

Toitū te marae a Tane Toitū te marae a Tangaroa Toitū te iwi - If the land is well and the sea is well, We the people will thrive.

LOWW welcomes corporate, community and school groups looking to engage with environmental projects through volunteering. We'd love teams to assist in weed species removal, planting native trees, releasing natives and taking care of previous plantings.

Amazing to learn so much about the different types of weed and the great conservation work the team over at Waiheke are so passionate about. We enjoyed the work out in nature and it felt really good to give back to the environment.
We enjoyed getting outside and being able to work together as a team, when we are so use to being in an office all day. We found it really interesting learning about planting and the different aspects around that.
We enjoyed being in a great environment, getting to know the other team members, the opportunity to spend time on Waiheke afterwards and a feeling of having contributed to restoring the environment.
