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!!
