In partnership with the Wellington City Council, CVNZ is working on the restoration of the myriad of rare and delicate coastal ecosystems along Wellington’s rugged South Coast. With the help of volunteers, our Dunes Restoration programme is making a positive difference to the ecology of this unique ecosystem, and raising awareness of just how special it is.
Whether it’s planting pingao and other dune species in the winter or keeping the areas weed and litter free in the summer, the contributions made by our volunteers are helping to create healthy habitat for a vast array of marine life which call this area home.
On this day we will be planting 500 coastal specialist plants on Huke te Taka/Moa Point Island. All of the species we will be planting are regionally threatened and their reintroduction to this area will vastly increase the value of this ecosystem. Come spend a day at the beach with us - we'd love your help!
