Engaging young people and local communities in the restoration of waterways and biodiversity



Enviroschools WaiRestoration is engaging young people and local communities in the restoration of waterways and biodiversity, building sustainable communities through wai/water. The WaiRestoration project has 7 key streams - WaiFencing, WaiNurseries, WaiPlanting, WaiMaintenance, WaiMonitoring, WaiEnterprise and Save a Species.

Enviroschools WaiRestoration is a facilitated project with a collaborative approach, evolving in response to issues of water health and management, and a desire to engage a range of people.

Launch of WaiRestoration celebration resource

The beautiful WaiRestoration resource has been printed and is ready for sharing around our beautiful motu!

Mihi nui ki a koutou to the fabulous Northland team of Susan, Jacque, Julie and Eden who have been implementing the successful WaiRestoration project over a number of years now. We would like to acknowledge the energy, passion and dedication you have all put into this vital project and the fruits that are now flourishing in your region as a result of so many positive collaborations, partnerships and actions for wai.  

We mihi to the many Enviroschools students, teachers and the whānau and communities involved in this project; the Northland Regional Council and many other partner organisations, iwi, community organisations and landowners involved.  This collective approach has shaped WaiRestoration and has created an environment that deepens learning and practice for everyone involved. Thanks also go out to Robyn Irving and Faye Wilson-Hill for their mahi in the resource development, and Kyla Saunders for the lovely design.  

This WaiRestoration booklet is a celebration and sharing of the collaborative learning, experiences and actions taken by Northland Enviroschools, farmers and landowners.  We hope that you all find inspiration in the approach and in the initiatives and actions for improving freshwater and preserving native species.
