As part of the Blue/Green Network, Whangarei District Council is supporting Whitebait Connection (Mountains To Sea Conservation Trust) in restoring the Waitaua Awa (River).
The difference Whitebait Connection makes is:
“Connecting communities to take positive action for the living treasures in their waterways”
So far this year, volunteers have helped to plant 1,600 plants at Tikipunga Sports Park. A new wetland has been planted and gaps in established plantings along the river have been filled with extra plants.
