The Whau River Catchment Trust is working to restore the natural environment and reduce pollution all around the Whau River Catchment.
We’re a charity based in New Lynn that was started in 2012. We’re made up of full and part-time staff dedicated to conservation and restoration in the area.
We work with Friends of the Whau (FOW), Auckland Council and others, to coordinate community-based environmental restoration and conservation projects in the area. For example, we organise regular education and volunteer activities including:
· ecological restoration by planting stream bank and other land within the catchment
· pest control – animal trapping and weed removal
· monitoring the biodiversity and ecosystems of the catchment
· reducing pollution and removing litter
· wildlife habitat restoration
We are working together for healthier streams and rivers through community participation and kaitiakitanga.
