Conservation Volunteers New Zealand (CVNZ) are supporting the Whaka-Ora Healthy Harbour partnership with a revegetation project in the Steadfast Stream catchment above Cass Bay. We've got two opportunities for you to come along and get involved in!
The Cass Bay Steadfast Stream revegetation project aims to restore habitat for native birds, lizards and insects, and provide refuge for native fish species such as the banded kokupu.
Steadfast Stream is one of several streams which drain the hills above Cass Bay. It once flowed through a forested gully and hosted an abundance of bird, lizard and insect life, along with native fish and plants. An ephemeral stream, re-establishing forest cover along its margins is key to encouraging native wildlife back to this area. The project will also contribute to protecting the health of the harbour waterways through pest, sediment and erosion control.
The Whaka-Ora Healthy Harbour Advisory Group is comprised of representatives from Te Hapu o Ngati Wheke, Te Rununga o Ngai Tahu, Lyttleton Port Company, Christchurch City Council and Environment Canterbury. Together their goal is to restore Whakaraupo/Lyttleton Harbour to an environment that is abundant, healthy and interconnected.
