East Tamaki, December 12th
Litter, particularly plastic, has a major impact on wildlife with birds and fish becoming entangled or mistaking the litter for food, eating the plastic and feeding it to their young. As the plastic breaks into small fragments in the water it leaches potentially toxic chemicals into our rivers and seas, threatening our ocean wildlife and us. By coming out to one of our clean up days you will be making a difference to the amount of rubbish that enters this toxic cycle and creating awareness about steps that we can take to prevent further degradation by recycling and encouraging others to do so too.
Join us and help us to protect and clean this area along the Tamaki River!

Brookby, January 28th, 2021
The Papakura catchment has seen a lot of change over the years with land clearance and loss of stream bank habitat. This project area is part of a large catchment and it will take a lot of community effort working together to restore the streams that flow to the Manukau Harbour.
This is the start of a big, exciting, potential series of projects that will enhance the health of the catchment. The plants will help to stabilise banks, prevent erosion, reduce sediment entering the water as well as providing habitat for birds, lizards and insects.
This is within the Forest and Bird’s South East Wild Link project area and these native plants and trees will provide potential important habitat for Kaka, Bellbirds, Kereru and Tui as well as New Zealand’s only native mammal, the long tailed bat.
We are restoring a section of the Papakura Stream with native plants and trees. We will be working with the local community and will also have groups of volunteers helping with the site preparation, planting and maintenance of the site. The plants will be eco sourced and provided by Te Whangai Trust.
We need your help, join us for a fun day!!
Milford, Feb 13th, 2021 and 1 other date
The Wairau Estuary in Milford is connected to the inland Wairau Valley Catchment, which stretches several kilometres into the industrialised and commercial heart of the Wairau Valley.
Extensive environmental testing has revealed the presence of common contaminants in the watercourse from industrial land, high traffic roads, and recreational activities in the estuary. Despite this, up to nine native freshwater fish and crustacean species are found in this waterway.
With support from the passionate locals in Milford and Castor Bay and technical advice from Auckland Council’s Healthy Waters Team, the Devonport-Takapuna Local Board has committed funding to support a cleaner and healthier Wairau Estuary and beach in Milford.
Conservation Volunteers New Zealand is coordinating with community members and volunteer groups to improve the health of the stream by running rubbish clean-ups and planting days along the edges of the estuary. We’d love to have your help and stay for a sausages’ sizzle at the end of the activities!
